Abstract

Carboxylation of β-diketones, 1, can be improved using samples containing 100% of ketoenol tautomers, 3, prepared by mild hydrolysis of the corresponding copper(II) complexes 2. Cyclization of the so formed 4-alkyl-3,5-dioxohexanoic acids, 4, affords 5-alkyl-4-hydroxy-6-methyl-2-pyrones, 5. © 1990, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
