Thermolysis of a benzene solution of N-[4-(p-(methoxybenzyl)seleno)cyclohexanoyl]-N,S-dimethyldithiocarbonate affords the hitherto unknown 7-selenabicyclo[2.2.1]heptane in 48% conversion and in 20% yield after chromatography. G3(MP2)-RAD calculations predict a rate constant of 5 × 104 s−1 at 80 °C (3.8 × 106 s−1 at 200 °C) for the intramolecular homolytic substitution process involved in this cyclization.
