Self condensation reaction of alpha-ketophosphonates

Göllü, Mehmet
This thesis presents synthesis of tertiary α-hydroxy phosphonate derivatives. α-Ketophosphonates is known that they are both acyl anion precursors and electrophiles. In this work, α-ketophosphonates were used as both acyl anion precursors and electrophiles in the presence of catalytic amount of KCN. α-Ketophosphonates underwent benzoin-type condensation reaction.
