(Methoxycarbonylmethylene)triphenylphosphorane is used in olefination reactions. Further, it undergoes the Wittig reaction with aldehydes to give substituted methyl acrylates. It is used in the preparation of (triphenylphosphoranylidene)-ketene.
Stable ylide which undergoes the Wittig reaction with aldehydes to give substituted methyl acrylates. See also (Ethoxycarbonylmethylene)triphenylphosphorane, A12896 and Appendix 1. For a detailed study of the reaction with benzaldehyde, see J. Org. Chem., 59, 1126 (1994). For use of high pressure to increase the yield and trans-selectivity of reaction with aromatic aldehydes, see: Liebigs Ann. Chem., 2135 (1983).
