No rings of fire! Enantiopure primary phosphanes have been developed which are remarkably stable to air oxidation in both solid and solution states (see example). This new class of stable ligand synthon appears to owe its stability to conjugation in their aryl backbones with the extended it ring system. Even one extra ring is good enough.
