Abstract: The title compound, C17H24O5, featuring a 2-carbethoxy-3-oxepanone unit in its intramolecularly O-H...O hydrogen-bonded enol form, was obtained via [(CF3CO2)2Rh]2-catalysed intramolecular O-H bond insertion in the [alpha]-diazo-[omega]-hydroxy-[beta]-ketoester, ethyl 4-[(1S,3aS,6R,6aS)-6-hydroxy-2,2,3a-trimethyl-3-oxo-octahydropentalen-1-yl]-2-diazo-3-oxobutanoate. The seven-membered oxacyclic ring, thus constructed on a cis-fused diquinane platform, was found to adopt a distorted boat-sofa conformation.
