Described herein are synthetic methodologies using palladium- and copper-mediated cross coupling reactions involving dialkylphosphites.

Chapter 1 discloses two methods for producing alknylphophonates. The first is a novel palladium mediated cross coupling of alkynylbromides with dialkylphosphites. The second is an improvement of a known aerobic copper mediated cross coupling using terminal alkynes and dialkylphosphites.

Chapter 2 discloses a novel aerobic copper mediated amide synthesis method.

Chapter 3 discloses a novel aerobic copper mediated phosphoramidate synthesis method.

All of the above developed methodologies were found to produce their respective products in acceptable yields and tolerate a wide range of functionality.

The experimental section comprises the practical methods for effecting the above reactions and the experimental data for all of the compounds presented herein.
