Decrease Toxic Metal Residues in Medicine (N-Heterocyclic Phosphines)
Invention SummaryThe invention is a new synthetic method for generation of P-C bonds (phosphorus-carbon bonds) with transition-metal-free reaction conditions. Phosphorus carbon bonds are often found in pharmaceuticals and antimicrobial natural products. Accordingly, creation of P-C bonds under metal-free reaction conditions would be highly desirabl...
