A generic and reproducible method for the preparation of homo- and heteroannular bicyclic beta-diketones is reported. The method employs the copper acetate mediated 1,4-conjugate addition of organozinc derivatives of iodopropionate and iodobutanoate esters to alpha, beta-unsaturated cycloalkenones, followed by intramolecular Dieckmann condensation.
