A novel, organobase-catalyzed and highly chemoselective Michael-Michael-acetalization cascade is presented for the efficient synthesis of spiro-indandione skeletons. Following this very simple protocol, a broad range of products was obtained in good yields with excellent diastereocontrol. The role of steric factors in the acetalization step was evaluated.
