It is possible to run two reactions in sequence. For example, treatment of two equivalents of ethyl acetate (1) with one equivalent of sodium ethoxide gives intermediate 2 via a Claisen-type condensation (no acid work-up yet). Addition of a iodide 3, followed by an acid quench, affords which product?
