Reagents / Intermediates

Solvay's alkylphosphine derivatives provide faster kinetics, improved selectivity and ease of work-up, which make them useful as reagents and intermediates for a variety of common reactions employed by the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries. These reactions include the Staudinger, Mitsunobu and Wittig reactions used for amine, ester and olefin synthesis. In addition, tertiary alkylphosphines are powerful reducing agents for disulfide reduction.

Tertiary alkylphosphines are also used at a catalytic level in transformations such as the Baylis-Hillman and Rauhut-Currier reactions.
