Triethyl phosphite is used as a ligand in organometallic chemistry and as a reagent in organic synthesis. It is used as reference to phosphoric acid standard in 31P NMR spectroscopy. It acts as a reducing agent to prepare 2-phenylindazole from o-nitrobenzylidineaniline as well as reacts with electrophiles to get phosphonates. It forms a stable complex with copper(I) iodide. It finds application in a modified Staudinger reaction for the alkyl bromide to an amine through the azide. Further, it is also used in the preparation of 3-phenyl-2-substituted indoles by reacting with beta-nitro styrenes.
Precursor of phosphonate esters by the Arbuzov reaction. See also Triisopropyl phosphite, A15247. The Arbuzov isomerization to diethyl ethanephosphonate can be induced by a trace of iodine: Synth. Commun., 20, 239 (1990). For reviews of the Arbuzov reaction, see: Org. React., 6, 273 (1951); Chem. Rev., 71, 317 (1971); 81, 415 (1981).
Reaction with acyl halides yields acylphosphonate esters, borohydride reduction of which gives aldehydes: Chem. Ber., 103, 2984 (1970).
