[2,4-Di-t-butyl-6-(N,N-dimethylaminomethyl)phenyl]dithioxophosphorane was prepared by the reaction of the corresponding phosphine and elemental sulfur. The structure of the dithioxophosphorane was analyzed by X-ray crystallography, which indicated a strong participation of the nitrogen lone pair in the stabilization of the dithioxophosphoryl group.
