Treatment of lithiated homoallylic phosphonates wiht dimethyl carbamyl chloride gave 2-amidophosphonate derivatives. A solution of 2-amidophosphonate in DME-H2O (2:1 vol) reacted with 2 eq. iodine at room temperature to give α-phosphono-γ-iodoalkyl-γ-butyrolactones in good yield, although the products are mixture. Wadsworth-Emmons reaction of α-phosphono-γ-iodoalkyl-γ-butyrolactones with aldehydes gave α-(alkyl)methylene-γ-iodoalkyl-γ-butyrolactone derivatives.
