A unique chemical transformation, the base-induced aerobic dimerization of ethyl 4-(2,5-dimethylthiophen-3-yl)-3-ketobutanoate leading to photochromic diarylethene with a 4-hydroxy-4-methylcyclopent-2-ene-1-one as an ethene bridge, is described. This compound is easily subjected to various chemical modifications and can be used as a new diarylethene precursor to produce photoactive compounds with desired properties and functions.
