Dalton Trans. 2016 Dec 21. doi: 10.1039/c6dt04390a. [Epub ahead of print]In the current work a range of multidentate pyridyl-phosphine ligands are synthesised with tuneable electronic and steric character, through the incorporation of a variety of alcohols into (amino)pyridyl-phosphine frameworks. The stoichiometric reactions of compounds of the type (R2N)xP(2-py)3-x (2-py = 2-pyridyl) with alkyl as well as aryl alcohols result in the formation of (alkoxy)pyridyl-phosphines (RO)xP(2-py)3-x (R = Me, 2-Bu, Ph).
