Abstract

It is shown that vanadium-iminato ligands are more efficient than imidazolidin-2-iminato substituents to delocalize the spin density from a phosphorus nucleus. However, the latter is stabilizing enough to allow for the isolation and characterization in the liquid and solid states of a neutral phosphinyl radical.
