        Cyclic diazo ketones can undergo the Wolff rearrangement giving
cyclic alkanes, by a ring contraction.
        alpha-diazocyclohexenone + hv(ligth)+methanol --+ cyclopentane
methilester(ref. J. Am. Chem. Soc. 1968, 90, 2200).
        You can find the mecanism reaction on Jerry March, Advanced
Organic Chemistry, McGraw-Hill international book company or in another
advanced Organic Chemistry book.
        Good Chemistry!
