A series of propargylic alcohols containing phosphonates was synthesized by addition reactions of tris-(propynyl) and tris-(phenylethynyl) aluminum reagents to acyl phosphonates in good yields. Aromatic moieties of the acyl phosphonates with electron-withdrawing groups generally resulted in better isolated chemical yield. Selected propargylic phosphonates were tested for antimicrobial activities. Compounds 3a and 3h showed noticeable antifungal activity, especially against molds.
