Ltd The diketo ester B was treated with ethylene glycol and p-toluenesulfonic acid to give monoacetal D, which served as the substrate for one-carbon introduction at C-4. Carboxylation of D was attempted under various different conditions employing bases and carboxylating agents available in 1964. 8, a combination of triphenylmethylsodium and carbon dioxide gave a positive result.
