Moisture Sensitive. Air Sensitive. Store under Argon. Ambient temperatures.
Soluble in DMSO and chloroform. Reacts with water.


Diethyl chlorophosphite acts as a versatile phosphorylating agent for ester and lactone enolates, amines and alkenols. It is used in the synthesis of organophosphates and are considered anticholinesterase agents through observation in studies.


Air & Moisture Sensitive. Store away from air and strong bases. Incompatible with water, bases, active metals and oxidizing agents.

Reacts readily with nucleophiles, e.g. amines, alcohols or organometallic species, with the introduction of a phosphorus substituent. The phosphorylation of OH groups has been brought about by treatment with the reagent followed by oxidation of the P(III) product to P(V) with, e.g. iodine: Synth. Commun., 12, 821 (1982); Synthesis, 572 (1986). The chlorophosphite has the advantage of greater reactivity over one-step phosphorylation reagents, e.g. Diphenyl­ phosphorochloridate, A13546.

Reagent for peptide coupling: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 74, 5304, 5309 (1952); see Appendix 6. Also useful, in the presence of TMS-OTf, in glycosidic couplings: Tetrahedron Lett., 33, 6123 (1992).

In the presence of N-ethyldiisopropylamine, reduces both aryl and alkyl nitro compounds to amines: J. Org. Chem., 63, 393 (1998). The reagent also effects dehydration of aldoximes to nitriles, deoxygenation of N-oxides and sulfoxides, and conversion of epoxides to chlorohydrins can also be effected: J. Org. Chem., 67, 711 (2002).
