Metathesis between CaI2 and K[P{CH(SiMe3)2}(C6H4-2-OMe)] in THF yields the alkoxophosphide complex [Ca{P(CH[SiMe3]2)(C6H 4-2-O)}(THF)]4·4THF (2) via a ligand cleavage reaction involving the migration of a methyl group from oxygen to phosphorus. X-ray crystallography shows that 2 contains a Ca4O4 cuboidal core with μ2-phosphide groups bridging four of the faces of the cuboid. © 2000 American Chemical Society.
