Wittig and Wittig-Horner reactions are favorite tools in preparative organic chemistry. These olefination methods enjoy widespread and recognition because of their simplicity, convenience, and effciency. Phase transfer catalysis (PTC) is a very important method in synthetic organic chemistry having many advantages over conventional, homogenous reaction procedures. In this paper, we attempt to summarize the aspects concerning Wittig and Wittig-Horner reactions that take place under phase transfer catalysis conditions.
