Phosphorus oxychloride as an efficient coupling reagent for the synthesis of esters, amides and peptides under mild conditions

A mild method is described for the conversion of carboxylic acids into esters, amides, as well as peptides without racemization through carboxyl activation by the reagent combination of POCl3 and DMAP. Long chain alcohols could be converted to the corresponding ester in good yields. P-31 NMR spectrum was used to detect phosphorus-containing intermediates in ongoing reactions directly, and a possible mechanism has been proposed based on these results.
