Research on chlorine-free conversions of P4 into organophosphorus compounds (OPCs) has a long track record, but methods that allow desirable, direct P−C bond formations have only recently emerged. These include the use of metal organyls, carbenes, carboradicals, and photochemical approaches. The versatile product scope enables the preparation of both industrially relevant organophosphorus compounds, as well as a broad range of intriguing new compound classes. Herein we provide a concise overview of recent breakthroughs and outline the acquired fundamental insights to aid future developments. Organic chemistry of P4: Research on chlorine-free conversions of P4 into organophosphorus compounds (OPCs) has a long track record (B versus A; see right), but methods that allow desirable, direct P−C bond formations have only recently emerged. Herein a concise overview of recent breakthroughs is provided together with the acquired fundamental insights to aid future developments.
