Abstract

The phosphoryl transfer reactions of diphenyl chlorophosphate with a wide range of alcohols were catalyzed by tris(pentafluorophenyl)boron [B(C6F5)3], giving the corresponding phosphate esters in excellent yields. This methodology has advantages over older ones because it employs the easily handled B(C6F5)3, avoids the side reaction, and has shorter reaction time.
