Abstract

The reactivity of nucleophilic carbodiphosphorane (C(PPh3)2, 1) and carbodicarbene (C(C(NMe)2C6H4)2, 2) towards various dichlorophosphines has been explored. In most cases the expected carbone-for-chloride ligand exchange was observed. However, the use of MeN(PCl2)2 resulted in a unique P-N bond cleavage that, according to computational studies, occurred via an SN2′-like mechanism. This journal is
