    • Abstract


      The compounds S(6-t-Bu-4-Me-C6H2O)2P(O)Cl (1), CH2(6-t-Bu-4-Me-C6H2O)2P(O)Cl (2) and (2,2′-C20H12O2)P(O)Cl (3) react with diazabicycloundecene (DBU) to give rise to, predominantly, the phosphonate compounds [S(6-t-Bu-4-Me-C6H6O)2P(O)(DBU)]+[Cl] (4), [CH2(6-t-Bu-4-Me-C6H2O)2P(O) (DBU)]+[Cl] (5) and [(2,2′-C20Hi2O2)P(0)(DBU)]+[Cl]- (6). The first two compounds could be isolated in the pure state. In analogous reactions of 1 and 2 with diazabicyclononene (DBN) or N-methyl imidazole, only the pyrophosphates [S(6-t-Bu-4-Me-C6H2O)2P(O)]2O (7) and [CH2(6-t-Bu-4-Me-C6H2O)2P(O)]2O (8) could be isolated, although the reaction mixture showed several other compounds in the phosphorus NMR. A possible pathway for the formation of phosphonate salts is proposed. The X-ray crystal structures of4,7 and8 are also discussed.
