For a real abelian field K, Sinnott's group of circular units C_K is a subgroup of finite index in the full group of units E_K playing an important role in Iwasawa theory. Let K_infty/K be the cyclotomic Z(p)-extension of K, and h(Kn) be the class number of K_n, the n-th layer in K_infty/K. Then for p<>2 and n going to infinity, the p-parts of the quotients [E_Kn : C_Kn]/h(Kn) stabilize. Unfortunately this is not the case for p=2, when the group C_1K of all units of K, whose squares belong to C_K, is usually used instead of C_K. But C_1K is better only for index formula purposes, not having the other nice properties of C_K. The main aim of this paper is to offer another alternative to C_K which can be used in cyclotomic Z(p)-extensions even for p=2 still keeping almost all nice properties of C_K.
