A convenient method for the prepn. of α-acyloxy ketones is described. Oxyacylation of a variety of ketones with O-acyl hydroxyamine derivs. provided the corresponding α-acyloxy ketones in good yields. (2-Benzoyloxy)-1,4-cyclohexanedione mono-ethylene ketal was successfully synthesized from 1,4-cyclohexanedione mono-ethylene ketal.
