Synthetic approaches to a series of open (1), fused (2), and spiroannelated (3) 2,4-cyclohexadien-1-yl ketones, which differ in the geometrical juxtaposition of the homoconjugated chromophores, have been worked out. A series of prototropic rearrangements was found to occur, establishing an equilibrium between 28–30.
