A new derivative of Cyclotriphosphazene with xanthydrol as the oxygen-containing ligand was synthesized. Firstly Hexaclorocyclotriphosphazene was obtained Hexaclorocyclotriphosphazene from ammonium chloride and phosphorus pentachloride reaction and then the deprotonated xanthydrol was reacted with Hexaclorocyclotriphosphazene in the ratio of 6:1 in dry toluene as the solvent. All of the Cl atoms were substituted with hydroxyl groups of ligand to give a new product with (NP (C14H10O) 2)3 formula. This product was identified by a series of spectroscopic techniques including FTIR, 31P NMR, 13C NMR, 1H NMR and mass spectroscopy. Analyses were performed to confirm the formation of the designed product and structure.
