Using "click" chemistry to access a new class of tripodal P3-ligand containing P=C bonds.


High yielding "click" reactions between phosphaalkynes and organo-triazides have afforded examples of tris(triazaphosphole)s, the utility of which as a new class of tripodal P(3)-ligand has been demonstrated with the preparation of an unusual diplatinum complex.
