ON THE FIRST MEMBERS OF THE SERIES OF CACODYL (CACODYL-PHOSPHONIC) ESTERS,
DIRECTORATE OF SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION SERVICES OTTAWA (ONTARIO)
The methyl-, ethyl-, n-propyl-, iso-propyl-, and n-butyl-esters of dimethyl cacodyl phosphinic acid were obtained by the reaction of dimethyl bromarsine and the relevant alkyl esters of phosphorous acid. A corresponding set of diethyl cacodyl phosphinic acid esters was prepared by the action of diethyl chlorarsine on trialkyl phosphites. The reaction schemes of formation, yields, physical properties, and chemical properties of both sets of esters were similar. The As-P bond in all of the product compounds could be easily disrupted by hydrogen halides, alkalis, and atmospheric oxygen.
