Abstract

While thermolysis of thiocarbonyl-stabilised phosphonium ylides generally results in extrusion of Ph3PS to give alkynes, those with a P=CH function instead undergo a novel P to S transfer of a phenyl group to give (Z)-configured 1-phosphino-2-sulfenyl-alkenes of interest as bidentate ligands.
