The site of kinetic deprotonation of enones is the α-position, leading to cross-conjugated dienolates. Kinetic deprotonation is usually achieved with strong bases such as lithium amides, and the resulting enolates undergo clean alkylation, leading to α-substituted enones (e.g., conversion of 283 into 284, Scheme 49).[‌229‌] Vinylogous esters such as 143 can also be alkylated in the α-position by similar protocols giving enones, e.g. 285.[‌230‌] Such reactions form part of a protocol for the indirect synthesis of γ-alkylated enones (see Section 3-Alkoxycyclopent-2-enones such as 286 can undergo a double deprotonation, since the initially formed enolate creates a cyclopentadiene skeleton which undergoes deprotonation to the aromatic cyclopentadienyl anion 287.[‌231‌] The di­anions undergo annulation reactions with double electrophiles, yielding fused bicyclic enones (e.g., 288) in a single operation.
