Reactions of α-diazo-β-ketoesters with cyclic ketones, lactones and carbonates are reported. Thanks to the combined use of salt [CpRu(CH3CN)3][BArF] and 1,10-phenanthroline as catalyst for the diazo decomposition, effective and practical syntheses of spiro bicyclic ketals, orthoesters and orthocarbonates are afforded.
