    Wittig reaction under Phase Transfer conditions was performed in a flow reaction system. Different bases, aldehydes, phosphonium salts, and flow reaction parameters were investigated, in absence of a phase transfert catalyst. An improvement of the reaction outcome (yield and reaction time) was achieved through the immersion of the reactor into an ultrasound bath
