Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) A sandwich recipe: Treatment of the anthracene complex [Co(η4-C14H10) 2]- with tBuC≡P leads to the new diphosphacyclobutadiene sandwich anion 1, which can be converted into the unprecedented phosphaorganometallic complexes 2-4 upon treatment with different electrophiles (see scheme).
