Use of Dibenzylphosphoryl Chloride for Phosphorylations


ABOUT ten years ago, one of us (A. D.), at the suggestion of Dr. P. Eggleton, began experiments on the synthesis of some biologically important phosphorous compounds at the Physiology Department of the University of Edinburgh. In the course of these experiments, the chloride of dibenzylphosphoric acid was prepared and its usefulness proved in preliminary experiments. This work had to be broken off and could not be resumed until recently.
