dc.description.abstractCurrent methods to synthesize alkenylphosphorus compounds are not suitable for industrial scale reactions, so this project aimed to develop an efficient, scalable two-step method that could be applied to a variety of readily-available starting materials. To optimize this method, several catalysts, a one-pot process, and various carbonyl substrates were explored. The catalyst Ti(O-i-Pr)4 gave the highest yields and enabled aromatic substrates to be utilized, while the one-pot process provided comparable yields with the traditional approach of two-steps with a work-up. Since this method gave good to excellent yields on sterically unhindered and aromatic ketones, future work aims to explore these and various aldehydes substrates, as well as a DOPO substrate to synthesize a vinylphosphonate flame retardant.
