The optical isomers of ten kinds of insecticidal 1,3,2-oxazaphospholidine 2-sulfides (OS) and two kinds of 1,3,2-benzodioxaphosphorin 2-sulfides (BS), including the commercial insecticide salithion, were synthesized in high optical purity by using two optically active aryl methyl phosphorochloridothionates (AMPC) as chiral two-step phosphorylating reagents. Their configurations were assigned according to the reaction mechanisms and supported by proton NMR information.
