E-infach radikalisch addieren: In Gegenwart von Triethylamin wird in situ aus einem Diorganophosphan und einem Chlordiorganophosphan ein Tetraorganodiphosphan erzeugt, das radikalisch an terminale Alkine addiert (siehe Schema) und die (E)-Diphosphanylethen-Derivate in hervorragenden Ausbeuten liefert. Unter den milden Reaktionsbedingungen werden zahlreiche funktionelle Gruppen toleriert.
