Abstract

Disubstituted malonic acid derivatives are smoothly converted into diketones and ketoesters in good to excellent yield (68% to 91%) under electrochemical conditions. The scope can be extended to transform trisubstituted bis-malonic acids into tetraketones in 77% to 86% yield. The new method was applied to the total synthesis of cis-jasmone.
