Many of the early attempts to determine the mechanism of nucleophilic substitution at phosphorus were based on the use of optically active compounds. Much of this work proved to be unsuccessful because of the difficulty.in obtaining the compounds, and their tendency to racemize or decompose during the reactions or workup. In the present work, a system has been developed that does not depend on optically active compounds.
