When I use the "Convert Structure to Name" feature in ChemDraw Professional 16.0 for diphenylphosphoryl azide (the proper name), I instead get diphenylphosphinyl azide as the structure. (when I use "Convert Structure to Name," it names the created structure as diphenylphosphinyl azide-correctly). DPPA is commonly used to intruduce azides in Mitsunobu reactions and is not a rare or incorrect name

Other sources (Wikipedia) also had similar errors (which I have corrected).

It interprets "Diphenyl Phosphorazidate" correctly, but this term has half as common (according to Google search results)

ChemDraw's preferred name for "diphenylphosphoryl azide" is diphenyl phosphorazidate and this works fine with NameToStructure function also.
