Abstract

original image

By simple bromine–lithium exchange a 2,5-dibromophosphole is converted into the corresponding 2-lithio derivative. This opens a new route to difunctionalized biphospholes (which are interesting in their own right as building blocks for synthesis) and to the unprecedented, α-linked quaterphosphole 1.
