Two papers in Angewandte Chemie from Chris Slootweg, UvA.

Sustainable Phosphorus Chemistry, J. Chris Slootweg (invited highlight), Angew.Chem. Int. Ed. 2018, 57,6386–6388
In this highlight the seminal work by Cummins and Geeson that uses of a novel silylphosphide synthon is discussed, which offers a route between phosphoric acid (H3PO4)and value-added phosphorus chemicals that had previously only been available from white phosphorus (P4). This breakthrough will undoubtedly stimulate the development of more atom-economic synthetic methods that will safeguard our precious resources, and in particular promote the sustainable use of phosphorus

Towards pericyclic organophosphorus chemistry, Angew .Chem. Int.Ed. 2018, 57,1683–1687
Organic chemists at the group of Dr Chris Slootweg of the Van ‘t Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences (University of Amsterdam) have successfully expanded the field of pericyclic organophosphorus chemistry for the development of sustainable synthetic procedures. Recently, they reported in Angewandte Chemie on the synthesis of the phosphorus analogues of cyclopentadienone, tricyclopentanone, and housene that have the potential to be used as building blocks for novel catalysts.
