(Chemical Equation Presented) Come together ... over Re: Oxorhenium-(VII) complexes catalyze the direct condensation of phosphoric acid with an alcohol to selectively give the corresponding phosphoric acid monoester on a 2-100-mmol scale (see scheme). This method should be useful for the industrially important synthesis of phosphoric acid monoesters.
