( b ) Acylation of cyclohexanone with diethyl carbonate yields the same b -keto ester formed in part ( a ). ( c ) The two most stable enol forms are those that involve the proton on the carbon f anked by the two carbonyl groups. ( d ) Deprotonation of the b -keto ester involves the acidic proton at the carbon f anked by the two carbonyl groups ( e ) The methyl group is introduced by alkylation of the b -keto ester. Saponi F cation and decar- boxylation complete the synthesis. ( f ) The enolate ion of the b -keto ester [see part ( d )] undergoes Michael addition to the carbon carbon double bond of acrolein. This reaction has been reported in the chemical literature and proceeds in 65 75% yield.
