Abstract:

The reactions of the phosphoryl and thiophosphoryl compounds R2PEXR F, CF3 E O,S X F,Cl,BR,CF3 with hexamethyldisiloxane and hexamethyldisilthiane Me3Si2E, E O,S have been investigated. The esters R2PEESiMe3 or R2PEESiMe3 are generally formed, the yield obtained and ease of reaction being reduced when S replaces O in either starting reactant. Evidence indicates that the reactions proceed via intermediates having pentacoordinate phosphorus atoms, and one such phosphorane intermediate, CF33POSiMe32, has been isolated and characterized. This new phosphorane, the first to be directly synthesized from a phosphine oxide, exhibits temperature-dependent 19F and 1H nmr spectral behavior which can be partially interpreted in terms of a fluxional trigonal-bipyramidal model. Nmr and new infrared data are also reported for CF32POBr. Author
