Abstract

The phosphine metal complexes now finding application in homogeneous catalysis are those of the tertiary organic phosphines. They were discovered around the middle of the last century and their ability to combine with heavy metal salts noted almost immediately, but the application of their metal complexes to homogeneous catalysis came only after the lapse of about 100 years.
