Hypophosphorous acid and hypophosphite salts

Recent Literature


The aqueous stability of deuterated calcium/sodium hypophosphites as nontoxic, cost-effective, and environmentally benign deuteration reagents enables deuteration of a broad range alkyl and aryl iodides with ample isotopic incorporation in aqueous (H2O) solution using 2,2′-azobis(2-methylpropionamidine) dihydrochloride as radical initiator.
