Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Valence isomerization of phosphepines into phosphanorcaradienes has been studied computationally to facilitate the development of novel, metal-free phosphinidene precursors that controllably release singlet phosphinidenes upon heating. This target becomes viable by benzannulation of the seven-membered phosphepine ring and the introduction of P-amino substituents. © 2010 American Chemical Society.
