The electrophilic activations of bicyclo[4.2.1]nonatrienes by 4-isopropyl-1,2,4-triazolinedione, N-iodosuccinimide, or an epoxidation/acidic ring-opening sequence is reported. The subsequent in situ trappings by water, alcohols, or benzoic acids led to original tricyclo[4.2.1.02,8]non-3-enes with high regio- and stereoselectivities. The synthetic potentiality of these synthons is illustrated by the straightforward access to a fused cyclopropane featuring six consecutive controlled stereocenters.
