Functionalized P,C-stereogenic tertiary phosphine oxides were prepared by the addition of (RP)-menthyl phenylphosphine oxide to activated olefins, in high drP and drC, and were isolated in excellent yields. The reaction was readily catalyzed by Ca­(OH)2 or occurred with gentle heating. A wide range of substrates, including vinyl ketones, esters, nitriles, and nitro alkenes, can be used in the reaction.
