Abstract

Treatment of 2,4,6-tri-tert-butyl-1,3,5-triphosphabenzene, P3C3But3, with the stable carbene 1,3,4,5-tetramethylimidazol-2-ylidene affords the planar 1,2,4-triphosphole, P3C2But2CBut(carben e), [carbene = C(N(Me)C(Me)[double bond, length half m-dash]C(Me)N(Me))] which has been structurally characterised as its η5- ligated [Mo(CO)3] complex; theoretical calculations are presented on the mechanism of this novel reaction.
