Phosphorous(V) Lewis acids: water/base tolerant P3-trimethylated trications

Author affiliations

Abstract

The water/base intolerance of the previously reported electrophilic phosphonium cations has been overcome by replacing the labile electron-withdrawing groups generally attached to phosphorus (e.g. –F, –OAr, –CF3) with methyl groups. Tri-phosphorus(V) tricationic species, accessible in one-pot from commercially available materials, are air and water/base tolerant, yet are sufficiently Lewis acidic for catalysis.
