Preventing solvent of crystallization in production of polyphosphite ligands



Residual wash solvent, e.g., ethyl acetate, is removed from polyphosphite, e.g., bisphosphite, crystals by a process comprising the steps of: A. Mixing the polyphosphite crystals and residual wash solvent with a secondary alcohol, e.g., isopropyl alcohol (IPA), to form a mixture of polyphosphite crystals, residual wash solvent and secondary alcohol, and B. Drying the mixture to remove the residual wash solvent and secondary alcohol to a content of less than 0.5 wt% based on the weight of the polyphosphite crystals.
