The synthesis of six new examples of 2,8-dinitro-substituted Tröger's base analogues are reported, together with the first examples of 1,7-, 3,9- and 4,10-dinitro Tröger's base analogues and the first example of a tetranitro Tröger's base compound. Several of these dinitro compounds lack substituents at the 2- and 8-positions and therefore provide further examples of Tröger's base analogues derived from anilines lacking a para substituent.
