The first resolution of an enantiomeric phosphorus triester, namely P(OPh)(OC6H4-p-Cl)(OC6H4-p-Me) (1), is reported. Compound 1 is remarkably stable to substituent exchange when pure. The unusually distant seat of chirality from the phosphorus appears to have interesting consequences on some chirality-dependent phenomena at this atom.
