Reactive Intermediates. A transiet electrophilic phosphinidene was obersverd by tandem mass spectrometry and its identify was confirmed by the addition to alkenes in the instrument’s ion guide that is shown in the background of the cover picture. The gas-experiments are consistent with solution-phase and computational studies as reported by K. Lammertsma (VU University Amsterdam), P. Chen (ETH Zürich) et al. in their Communications on page 1454 ff.
