TL;DR Summary
Organic Chemistry
I am interested to see if anyone knows the easiest way to mono-esterify a mono-phosphate salt group to a carboxylic acid.

How to facilitate the resultant -> product ?

CH3COOH + NaH2PO4 ‐> C2H4NaO5P + H20

You can google “acetyl phosphate preparation” to get several results on how the compound is prepared commercially. Generally, it goes through a transesterification of an organic acetate with phosphoric acid, rather than a direct reaction of acetic acid with a phosphate, though the latter will probably work at least a little bit under the right conditions. The compound itself isn’t likely to be particularly difficult to make, but the separation/isolation/general workup is probably where most of the optimization of the reaction happens.

Thanks for the response,
Would you happen to have an optimal route to synthesis?

I’m not going to be able to do better than a google search can.
