Widely available, hazard-free sodium phosphinate directly furnishes sodium diarylphosphinates and their corresponding acids in yields up to 86 % by using Pd-catalysis. This versatile method tolerates moieties such as keto and carboxyl, incompatible with the classical Grignard or organolithium reagents. This route also eliminates the need for PCl3 and alkyl- or ammoniumphosphinates.
