Mild Reduction of Phosphine Oxides with Phosphites To Access Phosphines

Mild Reduction of Phosphine Oxides with Phosphites To Access Phosphines
Pascal Métivier, Raphael Wischert, Peng Li
In 1669, Henning Brand discovered the element phosphorus by reducing phosphate contained in urine under harsh conditions and thus started phosphorus chemistry while not knowing that he was reducing P=O bonds. In their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201709519), P. Li, P. Métivier, and R. Wischert propose an efficient, mild, and inexpensive method for reducing the P=O bonds in phosphine oxides through oxygen transfer and transmutation with another phosphorus species.
