A base could accelerate the SN2′ or SN2′−SN2′ reaction of Morita−Baylis−Hillman (MBH) carbonates with dialkyl phosphine oxides, but the judicial choice of an appropriate base would greatly depress this competitive SN2′ reaction and allow for a highly enantioselective allylic substitution reaction with satisfactory yields and excellent enantioselectivities.
