A versatile synthesis of 1,2,3-triazolyl-4-phosphines from the borane complexes of phosphino-alkynes is reported. The efficiency of the procedure relies on the use of readily available silyl-protected alkynylphosphine-boranes, which were subjected to desilylation with TBAF followed by copper-catalyzed azide-alkyne-cycloaddition in one pot. Subsequent treatment with DABCO afforded the targeted triazolylphosphines in ...
