Abstract: 1,3-Cyclotridecanedione (IIIа) and 1,3-cyclotetradecanedione (Illb) have been prepared by a three-step synthesis from diethyl dodecanedioate and tridecanedioate respectively, and the structure of by-products of first two reactions has been proved. By means of 'H-n.m.r. and infrared spectroscopy it has been found out that IIIа and lllb exist in the ketoenol form which is stabilized by intramolecular hydrogen bond. Methylation of the anions of IIIа and lllb took place at the carbon atoms in low yields. Reaction of IIIа with diazomethane did not afford the expected product of O-methylation but 2,2'-methylenedi-1,3-cyclotridecanedione (VII) was isolated.
