Recently, Brønsted acids, such as phosphoric acids, carboxylic acids, and triflic acid, were found to catalyze the reduction of phosphine oxides to the corresponding phosphines. In this study, we fully characterize the HCl, HOTf, and Me2SiHOTf adducts of triphenylphosphine oxide and find that the thermally stable adduct Ph3POH+OTf– is efficiently converted into triphenylphosphine at 100 °C in the presence of readily available hydrosiloxanes. Under the same reaction conditions, also Ph3POSiMe2H+OTf– selectively affords triphenylphosphine indicating that silylated phosphine oxides are likely intermediates in this process.
