Green synthetic approaches in organophosphorus chemistry: recent developments

Organophosphorus chemistry is a very broad and exciting field, with potential opportunities to the researchers involved in multi-disciplinary areas of scientific endeavour including organic, medicinal, pharmaceutical, agricultural and industrial chemistry. Organophosphorus compounds find extensive applications in all these fields owing to their inherent physical and biological properties. With the advent of the concept of ‘a green chemistry approach’, synthetic organic chemists have been motivated to develop eco-friendly methodologies for generating phosphorus-functionalized compounds of potential interest, focusing on various aspects of green chemistry principles, and as a result considerable progress towards green and sustainable chemistry has been accomplished during the last decade. In continuation of our earlier contribution, this present chapter is also aimed to offer an overview of such developments in the field of green synthetic approaches in organophosphorus chemistry reported during the year 2015.
