The addition of dialkylphosphites to methylvinylketone giving dialkyl-3-oxobutyiphosphonates was studied applying different reagents, such as NaOR/ROH, NaOH/H2O under PTC, DBU, and R3Al (R = Me, Et) under different conditions to find the optimum choice regarding efficiency and selectivity. Possible extensions to a few other model compounds were also investigated.
