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).

    ABSTRACT: New 1,3-propanediaminocyclotriphosphazene derivatives (7–17) were synthesized from the reactions of spiro-1,3-propanediaminocyclotriphosphazene, N3P3Cl4[NH(CH2)3NH] (1) with the cyclopropanemethylamine (2), cyclohexylamine (3), pyrrolidine (4) cyclohexanol (5), cyclopropylmethanol (6). The structures of the novel compounds (7–17) were characterized by elemental analysis, mass spectrometry, 1H and 31P NMR spectroscopy. The molecular structures of 8, 12 and 13 were determined by X-ray crystallography. The structures of all these three compounds are in the monoclinic crystal system; compounds 8 and 12 have the P21/c space group while compound 13 has the P21/n space group. The ring conformation of the cyclotriphosphazene and other external rings were investigated based on the X-ray crystal structures.

    ABSTRACT: In the present work, coumarin substituted cyclotriphosphazenes were designed, synthesized and characterized for the first time. The reactions of sodium derivative of 3,3′-methylenebis(4-hydroxycoumarin), (dicoumarol, 1), with cyclotriphosphazene, (N3P3Cl6, 2), in a THF solution gave mono-spiro (3), bis-spiro (4) and tris-spiro (5) dicoumaroxy- substituted compounds. All dicoumaroxy-substituted cyclotriphosphazene compounds (3–5) were fully characterized by elemental analysis, IR, ESI mass spectrometry, 1H and 31P NMR spectroscopies. Generally, bulky diol derivatives prefer ansa- or bridged products by reacting with cyclotriphosphazene. But, surprisingly, dicoumarol which is also bulky diol derivative gave only spiro products in this study. The molecular structures of compounds (3–5) were also determined by X-ray crystallography. The crystal structures of these compounds were solved by direct methods and refined by full-matrix least squares.
