The reaction of either toluene-3,4-dithiol or benzene dithiol with phosphorus(III) trihalides generate the corresponding benzo-fused 1,3,2-dithiaphospholes, RC6H3S2PX (R = Me (1), R = H (2); X = Cl, Br, I). The P-chloro-dithiaphospholes undergo: (a) halogen abstraction reactions with Lewis acids forming phosphenium cations; (b) substitution with LiHMDS base and; (c) reduction chemistry with sodium metal to generate the P-P -bonded dimer, (RC6H3S2P)2. Reduction catalysis of aldehydes with pinacolborane using dithiaphospholes is compared with their dioxaphosphole and diazaphosphole counterparts as precatalysts, revealing interesting differences in the reactivity of this series of compound.

Date included includes the synthesis of compounds and structure characterisation including NMR, X-ray and DFT calculations.
