Unusual Phosphorus Cations

We have recently made a synthetic breakthrough in the area of heterocyclic organophosphorus chemistry that has facilitated the isolation of two unusual classes of phosphorus-carbon ring systems. Specifically, we have discovered that the reaction of a phosphaalkene with electrophiles (HOTf or MeOTf) results in either a three- or a four-membered ring
