ABSTRACT
The aim of this review is to provide a comprehensive view of the chemistry of cationic polyphosphorus cages. The synthetic protocols established for their preparation, which are all based on the functionalization of P4, and their intriguing follow-up chemistry are highlighted. In addition, this review intends to foster the interest of the inorganic, organic, catalytic and material oriented chemical communities in the versatile field of polyphosphorus cage compounds. In the long term, this is envisioned to contribute to the development of new synthetic procedures for the functionalization of P4 and its transformation into (organo-)phosphorus compounds and materials of added value.

sch8: Preparation of compounds 32a–h[ECl4] from P4, RPCl2 and ECl3 (E = Ga, Al; R = alkyl, aryl) in fluorobenzene.

Mentions: Despite their different compositions 1 : 1 mixtures of RPCl2 and a Lewis acid ECl3 (E = Al, Ga) in fluorobenzene are potent sources of reactive phosphenium ion RPCl+ equivalents, which insert formally into P–P bonds of P4.39 Dissolution of P4 in these mixtures yielded white to yellowish precipitates of the corresponding RP5Cl+-cage salts for a large range of different alkyl- and aryl-substituents R (32a–h[GaCl4], Scheme 8).
