Structures and Unexpected Dynamic Properties of Phosphine Oxides Adsorbed on Silica Surfaces Academic Article uri icon


  • Solid-state NMR spectroscopy of selected phosphine oxides adsorbed on silica surfaces establishes the surface mobilities, even of phosphine oxides with high melting points. Crystal structures of the adducts Ph3 PO⋅HOSiPh3 and Cy3 PO⋅H2 O indicate that the interactions with silica involve hydrogen bonding of the P=O group to adsorbed water and surface silanol groups.
