Best Synthetic Methods: Organophosphorus Chemistry.pdf
The work provides systematic coverage of the most common classes of pentavalent organophosphorus compounds and reagents (including phosphonyl, phosphoryl and organophosphates), and allows researchers an easy point of entry into this complex and economically-important field. The book follows the Best Synthetic Methods format, containing practical methods, synthetic tips and short-cuts. Where relevant articles include toxicity data and historical context for the reactions. Typical analytical and spectroscopic data is also presented to enable scientists to identify key compound characteristics. The book will be a hit with research chemists in academia and industry as it summarizes the best practical methods (many of which appear in difficult-to-access primary literature written in a foreign language) in one place. There has been a gap in the market for such books for many years. Ideally suited for those working on industrial applications of these compounds including insecticides, herbicides, flame retardants, and plasticizers. The book will acts as a standard reference source for researchers decades after publication and contain carefully selected information that will not date significantly. It reviews tried and tested, and historical methods that are proven to work, alongside new methods to provide scientists with a quick time saving resource of reliable methods. It includes tips and tricks to get reactions to work; important information often missing from other sources. It provides key analytical data for compounds so scientists have one handy resource to select, perform and analyse the best reaction.
