In this work, the first radical alkylphosphanylation reaction of activated olefins, such as α,β-unsaturated esters, amides, imides, nitriles and sulfones is described. This reaction uses Me3SnPPh2 and Me3SiPPh2 as trapping and chain-transfer reagents in combination with secondary and tertiary alkyl iodides.
