Hydrogenation of the phenol ring over RhO2 /PtO2 in acetic acid was followed by oxidation to give diketo ester C, which gave unsaturated diketo ester D after 4 steps. The diketo ester D was then converted to B. In the course of this work, both C and D could be provided by degradation of commercially available gibberellin A3 . The relay synthesis of gibberellin A4 was completed in December 1967 just before Professor Yabuta’s 80th birthday.

If so, A would serve as a useful relay compound in our gibberellin synthesis. 8, treatment of gibberellin A3 with hot mineral acid generates gibberic acid and epigibberic acid via aromatization of ring A and Wagner–Meerwein rearrangement involving rings C and D. Keto lactone A, which could be prepared readily from gibberellin A3 by methylation followed by MnO2 oxidation, might give phenol C after acid treatment and methylation. My experimental result, however, was different. The product was a dienone ester B, as proved by its UV, IR and 1 H NMR data.
