A sequential nucleophilic addition of lithio-trimethylsilylmethylphosphonate to an acyl fluoride followed by generation of a lithio-β-ketophosphonate by desilylation and a Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons reaction of an aldehyde took place cleanly in a one-pot operation. Various E- and Z-enones were obtained in high yields with high stereoselectivities by this one-pot procedure.
