Dr. Henri A. van Kalkeren, Dr. Floris L. van Delft and Prof. Dr. Floris P. J. T. Rutjes Organophosphorus Catalysis to Bypass Phosphine Oxide Waste ChemSusChem 6
Waste not wanted: In the past decade, several methods have emerged that address the formation of phosphine oxide waste products resulting from well-known organic transformations such as Wittig, Appel, and Mitsunobu reactions. This Minireview outlines the two distinct strategies and the underpinning research. The potential of the emerging field of organophosphorus catalysis is highlighted and new developments that may stimulate further research are described.
