Stereoselective addition of a vinyl cuprate reagent to a cyclopropenone acetal (2) followed by in situ electrophilic trapping with an alkylating agent affords a cis-1-alkyl-2-vinylcyclopropanone acetal (3), which then undergoes thermal 1,5-hydrogen migration reaction to give the acetal of a Z,E-dienone (4) in 70-90% overall yield. Hydrolysis under mild acidic conditions affords the corresponding dienone or trienone (5) in high yield.
