Abstract

The structure of the first tetrameric alpha-lithiated N-phenylphosphazene has been determined in the solid state and shown to persist in toluene solution, an observation that gives insight into the variation in stereoselectivity found for reactions of alpha-lithiated phosphazenes with aldehydes.
