The synthesis and characterization of a series of five new diaminodithiophosphoric acid esters (R1R2N)2P(S)SR and five new aminotrithiophosphoric acid esters (R1R2N)P(S)(SR)2 are described. The structure of two of these compounds, the diaminodithio derivative (iPr2N)2P(S)SCH2Ph and the aminotrithio derivative (iPr2N)P(S)(SCH2Ph)2, has been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. These series of compounds are potentially usable as agents for reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer polymerization.
