Two types of reactions, namely the Pudovik reaction of benzaldehyde and acetophenone with diethyl phosphite as well as the substitution of the α-hydroxyphosphonates so-formed by primary amines to afford α-aminophosphonates, were evaluated by quantum chemical calculations at the B3LYP/6-31G(d,p) level. An unexpected neighboring group effect was found to enhance the substitution. A series of new α-aminophosphonates was synthesized by the microwave-assisted substitution of α-hydroxyphosphonates by alkylamines.
