Treatment of the α-diazomalonates (5a-c) of 2-[(2-phenylthiomethyl)-1-cycloalkenyl]ethanols with rhodium acetate led to the [2,3] sigmatropic rearrangement of the cyclic allylsulfonium ylides (6a-c) to give the spiro-fused δ-valerolactones (7a-c) in excellent yields. Similarly, the spiro-fused γ-butyrolactone (10) was prepared starting with the α-diazomalonate (9) of [(2-phenylthiomethyl)-1-cyclohexenyl]methanol analog.
