Abstract: The synthesis of cyclopentanoid antibiotic Kjellmanianone is described in this study. The C-acylation of lithium enolates of 3-Methoxycyclopentenone by N-carbomethoxyimidazole or methylcyanoformate \beta-ketoester, which when oxidized with Mn(III) acetate produces kjellmanianone in good yield.
