Abstract

P(OPh)(3). Some organophosphites, such as P(OMe)(3) or P(OiPr)(3), transiently form zerovalent, metallic nickel, while this is the only persistent product observed with the bulky organophosphite P(O-2,4-tBu(2)C(6)H(4))(3). We expect that these results will alleviate the need for time-consuming testing and random optimization of several different reaction conditions, thus enabling a faster development of these and similar pnictide nanomaterials for practical applications.
