We describe the coordination chemistry of the primary phosphine PH2C(O)NH2 (phosphinecarboxamide) towards group 6 transition-metals. Experimental and theoretical studies reveal that this novel species has comparable electronic properties to PH3.
We demonstrate that the synthesis of new N-functionalized phosphinecarboxamides is possible by reaction of primary and secondary amines with PCO(-) in the presence of a proton source. These reactions proceed with varying degrees of success, and although primary amines generally afford the corresponding phosphinecarboxamides in good yields, secondary amines… (More)
