The previously reported preparation of 2,4-dichloro-3-phenylcyclobutenone from 2,4-diclilor-3-phenyl-3-butenoic acid (presumably by way of a vinylketene intermediate) does not appear to represent an example of a general synthetic route to cyclobutenones. 2-Chloro-3-phenylcyclobutenone is preparable by this method, but no success was achieved in attempted syntheses of a number of related compounds.
