Abstract: Desilylation of the 2-phosphinophosphinine 2-PPh 2-3-Me-6-SiMe 3-PC 5 H 2 with HCl gave 2-PPh 2-3-Me-PC 5 H 3 , demonstrating the late-stage modification of this bidentate heterocyclic ligand. Group 6 metal carbonyl complexes of these ligands showed κ 2-binding and very small bite-angles of 65.1-68.3°, and also demonstrated that the donor properties of 2phosphinophosphinines can be tuned readily by the presence of the SiMe 3 group which gives a more π-accepting phosphinine ligand. The properties of 2-phosphino…
