Enantiomerically pure 5-monosubstituted 1,2λ5-oxaphospholanes were synthesized by the reaction of sodium hydride with enantiomerically pure 3-hydroxyalkyltriphenylphosphonium salts. The reaction of 1,2λ5-oxaphospholanes with aldehydes afforded Z-rich homoallylic alcohols in nearly quantitative yields. The E:Z ratio of the products was in the range of 11:89-34:66.
