Manganese(III)-Mediated Selective Diphenylphosphinoyl Radical Reaction of 1,4-Diaryl-1-butynes for the Synthesis of 2‑Phosphinoylated 3,4-Dihydronaphathalenes

A diphenylphosphinoyl radical-initiated sequential reaction of 1,4-diaryl-1-butynes and analogues is developed for the synthesis of 2-phosphinoylated 3,4-dihydronaphathalenes and related compounds.
