Abstract

An improved synthesis of ferrocenyldimethlphophine, FcPMe2, is limited only by the unreliable literature procedure for preparing precursor dichloroferrocenylphosphine, FcPCl2. The latter compound yields a crystalline copper(I) iodide complex on reaction with lithium dimethlcuprate. Methanolysis of FCPCl2 yields unstable dimethl ferrocenylphosphonite, FcP(OMe)2, which is converted to methyl ferrocenylphosphinite, FcPH(O)OMe, on heating or chromatography.
