Phosphaethenes having more than one phosphorus-carbon double bond on a benzene ring were prepared. The E/Z photoisomerization reactions of these phosphaethenes were studied using 31P NMR spectroscopy. The structure of 1,2-bis[2-(2,4,6-tri-t-butylphenyl)-2-phosphaethenyl]benzene was determined by X-ray crystallographic analysis.
