Several polycyclic β-lactams have been synthesized by the reactions of cyclic imines with acid chlorides in the presence of triethylamine. The azido-functions in these β-lactams were reduced to amino-groups, which were then acylated with phenylacetyl chloride to introduce the penicillin G side chain. Some carbocyclic analogues of cephalosporin were found to possess antibacterial activity.
