Introduce phosphorus into a compound

  1. Apr 17, 2005 #1
    What is the best way to introduce phosphorus into a compound your are trying to synthesis?

    btw I want to add to be an "ester" but instead of the carbon atom being the centeral atom I want it to be P

    I'm not quite sure what you are asking, but one way to introduce Phos. to certain types of organic compounds is doing the 1st step of a Wittig reaction to create the phosphorous ylide.
