- structure of phosphoric acids (anhydrides and esters)
- Phosphoric acid = H3PO4
- Pyrophosphate is the simplest phosphoric acid anhydride.
- Phosphodiester bonds link together the DNA and RNA backbone.
- Phosphoester bonds link the phosphates to the sugar in ATP.
- Wittig reaction
- Carbonyl + Phosphorus Ylide → Alkene
- The C1=O + Ph3P=C2 → C1=C2
- Most Wittig reactions are not stereospecific.
