Numerous synthetic routes have been recommended for the preparation of γ- and δ-oxo acids. The present paper collects methods which need simple starting materials, procedures and conditions. Many examples are presented, comparing the preparations of aliphatic, cycloalkane, aromatic and hetero ring-containing oxo acids from the aspects of yield, regio- and diastereoselectivity.
