The sterically induced formation of phosphanyl radicals is the crucial step that determines if magnesium reduction of N-heterocyclic chlorophosphanes in the presence of Et3NHCl gives diphosphanes or proceeds all the way to yield secondary phosphanes. The latter can be converted back to diphosphanes upon exposure to light.
