An efficient method for the synthesis of enol ethers and enecarbamates has been developed based on catalytic hydrosilane reduction of α-phosphonoxy enol ethers and α-phosphonoxy enecarbamates. This method has been applied to the total syntheses of two isoindolobenzazepine alkaloids, lennoxamine and chilenine.
