Die Horner-Variante der Wittig-Reaktion : unter milden Bedingungen durchführbar und mit stereochemischen Optionen ausgestattet

Metalated phenylphosphine oxides reacted with aldehydes at room temp. to give trans olefins with high selectivity. Thus, Ph2P(O)CH2Ph was treated with BuLi, then with PhCHO to give 78% trans-stilbene. The configuration of a double bond present in the starting material was conserved throughout the reaction sequence, e.g., (E)-Ph2P(O)CH:CHMe reacted with BuLi and PrCHO to give 28% (E,E)-MeCH:CHCH:CHPr, with only traces of the other isomers.
