Air-stable chiral primary phosphines part (ii) predicting the air-stability of phosphines

This article reviews recent research from our group on the development of a DFT-based model which has thus far proven capable of predicting and rationalizing the air-stablility/sensitivity of many structurally diverse primary phosphines (RPH2). Furthermore, it also replicates the general trend of increasing resistance to air oxidation upon going from primary phosphines to their tertiary counterparts for a given R group. The model successfully predicted the behaviour of BodPH2, a previously unknown compound, and the first highly fluorescent, air-stable primary phosphine.
