Phosphoranes are formed when halocyclophosphazenes or spiro[arylenedioxycyclophosphazenes] react with ortho dinucleophiles such as catechol and base or o-aminophenol. With the latter reagent, a critical intermediate in the degradation pathway, iminobis[spiro[bis(o-phenyleneoxyamino)phosphorane]], has been isolated. The effects of temperature, solvent, and other nucleophiles on these reactions have been analyzed, and the reaction pathways are discussed.
