Room temperature hydrophosphination using a simple iron salen pre-catalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

Phosphines are fundamentally important to the fine chemicals, pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries. Reported is the first example of alkene hydrophosphination using a designed iron pre-catalyst which yields the anti-Markovnikov products in high yield at room temperature. The phosphine products are excellent pro-ligands for Fe-catalyzed Negishi cross-coupling.
