Inside Cover: Nucleophilic Phosphinidene Complexes: Access and Applicability (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 12/2010)
Nucleophilic phosphinidene complexes, which are isoelectronic to well-known carbene complexes, are establishing themselves as useful reagents for organic synthesis. In their Minireview on page 2102 ff., K. Lammertsma et al. give an overview of the different synthetic pathways to this class of phosphorus reagents and describe their potential applications for a wide range of chemical conversions.
