Triphenylphosphine dibromide is used as a reagent for conversion of aldoximes into nitriles. It acts as a reagent for cleavage of acetals. It reacts with amines to give iminophosphoranes. Further, it serves as a reagent in the preparation of alkyl and aryl bromides from alcohols and phenols without rearrangement.
Reagent for the conversion of alcohols and phenols to bromides in good yields: J. Org. Chem., 37, 626 (1972). Particularly useful for alcohols where sensitive functionality is present: J. Org. Chem., 49, 431 (1984); Synth. Commun., 22, 2945 (1992). Cleaves dialkyl ethers to the two alkyl bromides: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 86, 5037 (1964); J. Org. Chem., 37, 626 (1972).
Reaction with amines gives iminophosphoranes, which have been used as a means of blocking an amino group to permit monoalkylation: Synthesis, 295 (1980). Iminophosphoranes also undergo a Wittig-like condensation with CO2 or CS2 to give the isocyanates or isothiocyanates respectively: Synthesis, 596 (1982):
Ureas are dehydrated to carbodiimides: Liebigs Ann. Chem., 718, 24 (1968); Synthesis, 373 (1981).
The reagent formed with DMSO at low temperatures provides an alternative to the Swern oxidation for selective conversion of alcohols to carbonyl compounds: Tetrahedron Lett., 43, 8355 (2002).
