A new type of oxidationreduction condensation of alcohols with sulfur, nitrogen, and oxygen nucleophiles by the combined use of phenyl diphenylphosphinite (PhOPPh2) and oxidants such as azides or diethyl azodicarboxylate (DEAD) are described. In these reactions, chiral secondary and tertiary alcohols are converted into the corresponding chiral sulfides, azides, esters and ethers under mild and neutral conditions with almost complete inversion of stereochemical configuration.
