Sterically encumbered acyclic diphosphazanes: synthesis, conformations and coordination behavior.

Abstract

The reaction between lambda3-diphosphazane [EtN(PCl2)2] and the sodium salts of substituted phenols affords sterically encumbered diphosphazanes [EtN{P(OR)2}2] (R = -C6H3iPr2-2,6 (1), -C6H3Me2-2,6 (2) and -C6H2Me3-2,4,6 (3)). When the same reaction was carried out with bulky sodium 2,4-di-tert-butyl-4-methylphenoxide, only a monosubstitution takes place to… (More)
