CYTOP® 222 is a strong reducing agent and is used as a chemical intermediate. It readily undergoes free radical addition to olefins to generate sterically hindered tertiary phosphine ligands that are in turn useful in homogeneous catalysis. In addition, it can be oxidized with either H2O2 or sulfur to yield either dinorbornylphosphinic or dithiophosphinic acid.
