Synthesis of thiophosphonates

Recent Literature


When treated with a radical initiator selenophosphates, selenophosphorodithioates, selenophosphorothioates and selenophosphorotrithioates undergo homolytic cleavage of the P-Se bond to generate radicals. Addition onto electron-rich and electron-poor alkenes in the presence of a hydrogen donor delivers the expected adducts in good yields.
