The generation and handling of the light-sensitive and metastable yellow arsenic (As4) is extremely challenging. In view of recent breakthroughs in synthesizing As4 storage materials and transfer reagents, the more intensive use of yellow arsenic as a source for further reactions can be expected. Given these aspects, the current stage of knowledge of the direct use of As4 is comprehensively summarized in the present review, which lists the activation of As4 by main group elements as well as…

TLDR
High-resolution electron microscopy shows that double-stranded phosphorus zigzag ladders can be observed upon filling single-wall carbon nanotubes from the vapor phase using red phosphorus as the source material, and Computational predictions of the encapsulation energies of the various pnictogen nanostructures are consistent with the observed experimental trends.

Facile storage and release of white phosphorus and yellow arsenic
TLDR
White phosphorus and yellow arsenic represent useful elemental sources for synthetic applications, but their poor stabilities make their storage highly challenging, so Scheer and colleagues encapsulate P4 and As4 molecules within porous activated carbons and demonstrate their use in subsequent chemical reactions.
Activation of phosphorus by group 14 elements in low oxidation states.
TLDR
The activation of phosphorus by compounds with low valent group 14 elements with special concern to the recent developments is covered, including the gentle activation of P(4) by an alkyne analogue of tin.
Triple-bond reactivity of an AsP complex intermediate: synthesis stemming from molecular arsenic, As(4).
TLDR
As(4) activation giving rise to a mu-As(2) diniobium complex, serving in turn as precursor to a terminal arsenide anion complex of niobium, which provides the new AsPNMes* ligand.

TLDR
A new design strategy for constructing finite cages and including guests based on anion coordination chemistry is demonstrated, which can readily accommodate the tetrahedral guests P4 and As4, which is facilitated by the shape and size complementarity as well as favorable σ-π and lone-pair-π interactions.
