Hunter, R. A., Whitby, R. J., Light, M. E. and Hursthouse, M. B. (2004) Synthesis of phosphinines and phosphinanes using zirconium chemistry Tetrahedron Letters, 45, (41), pp. 7633-7636. (doi:10.1016/j.tetlet.2004.08.098).

Record type: Article


Ring expansion of readily available zirconacyclopentadienes or zirconacyclopentanes by insertion of chloro(trimethylsilyl)rnethyllithium followed by metathesis with phosphorous trichloride provides a novel route to lambda(3)-phosphinines (phosphabenzenes) or phosphinanes.
