Abstract

Abstract Use of a silyl supported stannylene (MesTerSn(SitBu3) [MesTer=2,6‐(2,4,6‐Me3C6H2)2C6H3] enables activation of white phosphorus under mild conditions, which is reversible under UV light. The reaction of a silylene chloride with the activated P4 complex results in facile P‐atom transfer. The computational analysis rationalizes the electronic features and high reactivity of the heteroleptic silyl‐substituted stannylene in contrast to the previously reported bis(aryl)stannylene.
