5-Alkylidenecyclopent-2-enones 15a-q may be prepared via a conjugate addition-Peterson olefination sequence, best achieved in one-pot, using exo-2-trimethylsilyl-3a,4,7,7a-tetrahydro-4,7-methanoinden-1-one 12, followed by a retro-Diels-Alder reaction. The geometry of the exocyclic alkene may be controlled according to the use of organometallic spec...
