ABSTRACT This study dealt with the reactions of hexachlorocyclotriphosphazatriene, N(3)P(3)Cl(6) (trimer) (1) with phenolphthalein (2) to give the phenolphthalein bridged compounds 3, 4 and 5. The phenolphthalein bridged cyclotriphosphazatriene derivatives are reported for the first time. The new compounds (3-5) are characterized by elemental analysis, mass spectrometry, UV-vis, FT-IR, (1)H, (31)P NMR and fluorescence spectroscopy. The more bridged phenolphthalein groups show the higher intensity of the absorption bands in the UV-vis spectra. Fluorescence spectrum of compound 3 shows a small band in the lower spectral range, while the spectra of compounds 4 and 5 show more intense and a band in higher spectral range.

    ABSTRACT: In the present work, octachlorocyclotetraphosphazatetraene (1), N4P4Cl8, is reacted with aniline (2), 1-napthylamine (4) and 2-aminoanthracene (6) to give octakis(arylamino)cyclotetraphosphazenes (3, 5 and 7). These cyclotetraphosphazene compounds (3, 5 and 7) have been fully characterized by elemental analysis, mass (MS), FT-IR, 1H and 31P NMR spectroscopies. The molecular and crystal structures of 5 have been characterized by X-ray crystallography. The structure of 5 is monoclinic with the space group P21/c. The octakis(1-napthylamino)-(5) and octakis(2-aminoanthracene)-(7) cyclotetraphosphazene compounds have been synthesised for the first time in this study. The fluorescence properties of 3, 5 and 7 have been investigated in tetrahydrofuran (THF) and have been shown to have highly fluorescence behavior. This work also presents the quenching of arylamino substituted cyclotetraphosphazene derivatives (3, 5 and 7) by p-benzoquinone (BQ) or hydroquinone (HQ).
