Its aroma characteristic changes from caramel-like at low concentrations to curry-like at high concentrations. A method described for its preparation comprises condensation of ethyl propionate with diethyl oxalate and reaction of the intermediately formed diethyl oxalylpropionate with acetaldehyde. Acidic decarboxylation of the ethyl 4,5-dimethyl-2,3-dioxodihydrofuran-4-carboxylate gives the title compound.
