A series of new aminophosphonate and phosphonic acid derivatives of hexahydroquinoxalin-2(1H)-ones and tetrahydroquinoxalin-2(1H)-ones were synthesised via hydrophosphonylation of the corresponding bicyclic imines with various dialkyl or diaryl H-phosphonates, H-phosphinates or H-phosphine oxides as phosphorus nucleophiles. The utility of the obtained compounds was demonstrated by their application as a source of phosphonate carbanion in the Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons (HWE) reaction leading to new bicyclic amines with an exocyclic, and unexpectedly, also endocyclic double bond depending on the structure of the aldehyde used.
