Phosphoramidic acid monoesters as phosphorylating agents: steric effects and reluctance to form monomeric metaphosphate intermediates

Author affiliations

Abstract

The formation of phosphate diesters (RO)2P(X)OH (R = Et, Pri or Pri2CH) by phosphorylation of ROH with ROP(X)(NPri2)OH is insensitive to steric effects when X = S but not when X = O; this is consistent with a unimolecular mechanism and a thiometaphosphate (ROPOS) intermediate when X = S but a bimolecular SN2(P) mechanism when X = O.
