This review deals with synthesis and reactions of 2,4-dioxoesters. Some of these reactions have been applied successfully to the synthesis of biologically important compounds. The data published over the last years on the methods of synthesis and chemical properties of 2,4-dioxoesters are reviewed here for the first time.
