A series of Lewis bases were screened for Abramov-type phosphine additions to aldehydes. A novel phosphine oxide aziridinyl phosphonate POAP-A was found to be better than the others in forming the product in 96% yield and with 42% ee. The absolute configuration of the newly synthesized POAP Lewis bases was determined by single-crystal X-ray analysis. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
