The structure of [P(O)Me3] has been determined by X-ray diffraction: crystals are monoclinic, space group C2/m with a 10•86(1), b 9•026(6), c 5•394(4) Å, β 92•09(8)° with Z = 4. Molecules lie on crystallographic mirror planes; P-O 1•489(6), P-C 1•772(6) and 1•770(10) Å, ∠O-P-C 112•2(2) and 114•0(4)°, ∠C-P-C 105•6(3) and 106•2(3)°.
