Abstract

Direct reductive transformation of triphenylphosphine oxide to triphenylphosphine was performed successfully by electrolysis with TMSCl in an acetonitrile/BuBr/(Zn anode)-(Pt cathode)/undivided cell/constant current electrolysis system. A plausible ECEC mechanism involving the formation of silylated phosphorus radical is proposed.
