A Brønsted base catalyzed rearrangement reaction of 2-allyloxy-2-phosphonoacetate derivatives was developed. This reaction proceeded via a [2,3]-Wittig rearrangement followed by a phospha-Brook rearrangement. This is the first example of a catalytic [2,3]-Wittig rearrangement initiated by a Brønsted base.
