Chemical Transformations of Phosphine and Phosphido Ruthenium Complexes

Han, Yong-Shen


Primary phosphines contain two reactive P-H bonds, providing the opportunity for further derivatisation. However, due to their reputation for being toxic, malodorous, and air-sensitive their chemistry is underdeveloped. Phosphido (PR2) groups exhibit curious behaviour as transition metal ligands, with the phosphorus atom binding in either pyramidal and nucleophilic, or planar and electrophilic forms. In the pyramidal case, the phosphorus lone pair shows increased nucleophilicity and basicity....[Show more]
