Organocatalytic Decarboxylative Aldol Reaction of β-Ketoacids with α-Ketophosphonates en route for the Enantioselective Synthesis of Tertiary α-Hydroxyphosphonates

Abstract

First example of asymmetric organocatalyzed decarboxylative aldol reaction of β-ketoacids (aroylacetic acids) with α-ketophosphonates that produces a quaternary chiral centre has been developed. A quinidine based bifunctional urea derivative was identified as the preferred catalyst affording γ-aroyl tertiary α-hydroxyphosphonates in good yield and enantioselectivity. The 31P NMR spectroscopic study was performed to shed a light into the reaction mechanism.
