An efficient P-arylation of secondary phosphine oxides has been achieved through the ligand-free copper-catalyzed addition of H-P(O) bonds to in situ generated arynes at room temperature. This transformation provides a straightforward route to the formation of the aryl-P bond with wide functional group compatibility, which produces arylphosphine oxides in… CONTINUE READING
