- Under copper-catalyzed or base-promoted conditions, a wide range of ene-yne-ketones react with H-phosphonates to afford various phosphorylated furans in good yields. A copper carbene generation or a Michael addition is proposed as the key step in the selective construction of the Csp³–P or Csp²–P bond, which is supported by carbene capture reactions and interval ³¹P NMR experiments. Furthermore, this method features inexpensive metal catalysts, no usage of oxidant, and high atom economy, which make it attractive and practical.
