Literature References

Conjugate additions of nucleophiles to the double bond give ß-substituted ethyl triphenylphosphonium salts which can be further reacted by Wittig olefination. Sequential reaction with phthalimide and an aldehyde leads, after hydrazinolysis of the resulting N-allylphthalimide, to 3-substituted allylamines: J. Org. Chem., 46, 3119 (1981). N-Alkyl allylamines can also be prepared from alkylamines: Tetrahedron Lett., 24, 3043 (1983):


A variety of heterocyclic systems can be synthesized by conjugate addition and subsequent Wittig condensation: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 86, 2744, 2963 (1964); J. Org. Chem., 33, 2416 (1968). Use of carbon nucleophiles permits synthesis of carbocyclic systems: J. Org. Chem., 30, 2082 (1965).


Conjugate addition of organocuprates leads to a new phosphonium salt which can be used in the Wittig olefination. With alkenyl cuprates this provides a stereoselective route to (Z,Z)-1,4-pentadienes: Tetrahedron Lett., 26, 1799 (1985). Sequential reactions, catalyzed by CuBr - Ag2CO3 or CuBr - H2O, with Grignard reagents and Wittig olefination with an aldehyde, have also been reported: J. Org. Chem., 61, 9659 (1996):
