Heterogeneous Organophosphate Ethanolysis: Degradation of Phosphonothioate Neurotoxin by a Supported Molybdenum Peroxo Polymer

Heterogeneous Organophosphate Ethanolysis: Degradation of Phosphonothioate Neurotoxin by a Supported Molybdenum Peroxo Polymer
Qianli Miao, Louis Y. Kuo, Andrew Bennett
The first reported case of phosphonothioate alcoholysis by a supported molybdenum complex shows the desired P−S bond scission under mild conditions. Specifically, O,S-diethylphenyl phosphonothioate is degraded to the benign diethyl phenylphosphonate in ethanol in the presence of hydrogen peroxide. This yields the desired degradation chemistry with the practical advantages of a heterogeneous support. In this connection, a solution model of the molybdenum support is also presented and yields similar ethanolysis properties.
