Jun Yong Kang (Chemistry and Biochemistry) and his research team (Hai Huang and Jeffery Ash) published a research article, "Tf2O-Promoted Activating Strategy of Phosphate Analogues: Synthesis of Mixed Phosphates and Phosphinate," in Organic Letters. This research reports an efficient, mild synthetic method of phosphates and mixed phosphonates. Phosphonate derivatives are prevalent in bioactive small molecules, pharmaceuticals, and agrochemicals. This synthetic methodology will have significant effect on the research of organophosphorus chemistry by avoiding the use of toxic metals and hazardous chloride reagents. Jeffery Ash is an undergraduate student in Kang’s research laboratory.
