Abstract

An efficient synthesis of multifunctional alkenes starting from substituted acrylates and aldehydes has been developed via phosphine-catalyzed Wittig reactions. The reactions proceed smoothly even under mild conditions (30-60°C) via a phosphine/phosphine oxide catalytic cycle using phenyl silane as the reducing agent. According to this simple protocol, the desired products are obtained in moderate to excellent yields as single stereoisomers.
