Abstract

Free-radical addition of secondary phosphines to 1-isopropenylpyrroles (AIBN, 65 °C) proceeds with 100% regioselectivity to give 2-(pyrrol-1-yl)propyldiorganylphosphines in 89-92% isolated yields. This constitutes a highly efficient, atom-economic, solvent-free (‘green’) synthesis of new promising ligands for metal complex catalysts, and potent building blocks for designing of drugs and advanced materials.
