6, 7-Aryl-2-oxa-7-azabicyclo[3. 2. 0]heptane compounds were obtained from arylimines with 2, 3-dihydrofuran under high pressure. When benzylidene aniline used as imine, 6, 7-diphenyl-2-oxa-7-azabicyclo[3. 2. 0]heptane was obtained 66% yield with 87% selectivity. This reaction was promoted by pressure and the yield and the selectivity of the reaction were increased by temperature. The mechanism of the reaction was considered zwittenonic route was favored.
