General Introduction

Enones appear as structural motifs in a diverse range of naturally occurring molecules, and α,β-unsaturated ketones in particular are widely used as building blocks in synthesis. The majority of specific methods for the synthesis of enones focus on α,β-unsaturated ketones and hence this will form the main body of this review, but significant methods for the preparation of nonconjugated variants are also discussed herein. Previously published information regarding this product class can be found in HoubenWeyl, Vol. 7/2a, pp 427461, 688746, Vol. 7/2b, pp 14561529, and Vol. 7/2c, pp 21002144.
