Genistein (0.30 g, 1.110 mmol) and triethylamine (1.00 mL) were dissolved in anhydrous alcohol (25.00 mL), and a mixture of CCl4 (5.00 mL) and either diisopropyl phosphite (0.18 g, 1.083 mmol) or diethyl phosphite (0.18 g, 1.304 mmol) was then added dropwise to the mixture of genistein and triethylamine at 5[degrees]C for 2 h.
Moreover, the hypoglycemic activities of compounds 3c and 3a were compared, showing that the hypoglycemic activity when 4 ' H was substituted by a methoxyl group was superior to that when 4 '-H was substituted by a hydroxyl group under 7-H which was substituted by diethyl phosphite.
