2 The Wittig Reaction The Wittig reaction is a very versatile synthetic method for the synthesis of alkenes from aldehydes and ketones Triphenyl- phosphine oxide Methylene- cyclohexane A phosphonium ylide + + - + CH 2 Ph 3 P= O Ph 3 P- CH 2 Cyclohexanone O

3 Phosphonium ylides are formed in two steps: Step 1: nucleophilic displacement of iodine by triphenylphosphine Step 2: treatment of the phosphonium salt with a very strong base, most commonly BuLi, NaH, or NaNH 2 Ph 3 P CH 3 -I Ph 3 P-CH 3 I Triphenylphosphine + + S N 2 Methyltriphenylphosphonium iodide (an alkyltriphenylphosphine salt) CH 3 CH 2 CH 2 CH 2   Li  + H-CH 2 -PPh 3   I - -  CH 2 -PPh 3 CH 3 CH 2 CH 2 CH 3 LiI A phosphonium ylide Butane Butyllithium + + + + + Wittig Reaction - Phosphonium Ylides

4 Wittig Reaction Phosphonium ylides react with the C=O group of an aldehyde or ketone to give an alkene Step 1: nucleophilic addition of the ylide to the electrophilic carbonyl carbon Step 2: decomposition of the oxaphosphatane CR 2 O CH 2 Ph 3 P CH 2 - :O CR 2 Ph 3 P O CR 2 Ph 3 P CH 2 - + An oxaphosphetane +  A betaine CH 2 O CR 2 Ph 3 P Ph 3 P=O R 2 C=CH 2 An alkene + Triphenylphosphine oxide
