Preparation of new types of trisubstituted oxazoles is realized via chemoselective O-acylations and intramolecular Wittig reactions with ester functionalities using in situ formed phosphorus ylides as key intermediates. A plausible reaction mechanism for this undiscovered chemistry is also proposed based on the existence of expected and rearranged isomeric oxazoles.
