Abstract: An approach to novel P-functional chloroformylphosphane complexes is described using the synthetic potential of lithium/halogeno phosphinidenoid tungsten(0) complexes. Similarly to transition-metal-free chloroformylphosphanes, the obtained complexes tend to eliminate CO via P–C bond cleavage to give the corresponding P-chlorophosphane complex derivatives. Nevertheless, this method allowed the isolation of the first complex derivatives, which will open new synthetic perspectives in organophosphorus chemistry.
