Sterically protected low-coordinated phosphorus-containing cyclobutenes were prepared and characterized as well as [4]radialenes. The reactions were studied involving E/Z isomerization, transition-metal complex formation, and coupling reactions catalyzed by some palladium complex ligated with diphosphacyclobutenes.
