A novel four-step sequence has been developrf for the direct conversion of acyclic and cyclic ketones to vicinally substituted cyclopentanones and spiro cyclopentanones respectively for entry into a wide rage of cyclopentanoids. The key step involves a pinacol type rearrangement of alkoxy cyclobutane derivative involvint migration of the stereoelectronically disfavored cyclobutane bond.
