UV-Irradiation (λ>280 nm) of the homoconjugated allene ketones 4 and 5 gives, in addition to small amounts of the ketodienes 8 and 17 (1,3-acyl shift), the enol ethers 9, 10 and 18, 19 respectively (cyclization process followed by 1,5-H-shift). However, on T-sensitization in acetone, 4 forms the spirodioxetane 13 in high yield. Irradiation of 4 in 2-propanol or ethanol affords the acetals 11 and 12.
