Abstract

Efficient synthesis of novel 6-(2-bromo-2-methyl propanoyloxy)hexyl phosphonic acid, dodecane di-phosphonic acid, 6-(thiophene-3-carbonyloxy)hexyl phosphonic acid, octadecyl phosphonic acid and such other derivatives are reported here. These derivatives have a potential application as tethers to nanoparticle surfaces that can promote efficient electron transfer process in solar energy conversion.
