Abstract

A series of 1,8,9-tris(phosphorus) substituted anthracenes was synthesised and fully characterised. Their molecular geometry is such that the middle phosphorus atom is in a highly congested space, with terminal phosphorus atoms in close proximity. The middle phosphorus atom accepts electron density from none, one or both terminal phosphorus atoms to form P–P bonds. Thus phosphino (repulsively interacting), metaphosphonato (single donor stabilised) as well as phosphenium (doubly phosphine donor stabilised) environments around the phosphorus atom in position 9 were synthesized and structurally characterised. Observed P⋯P distances range from 2.22 to 3.27 Å.
