A series of N-phenylalkyl-substituted tropane analogs of boat conformation was synthesized, and these tropanes were evaluated for their ability to inhibit high affinity uptake of dopamine (DA) and serotonin (5HT) into striatal nerve endings (synaptosomes). Some of these compounds exhibit high affinity for the DA transporter with a 5-HT/DA transporter selectivity ratio of >50.
