A simple method to build phospholene derivatives has been achieved in a one-pot reaction with readily available o-alkynylaryl bromides and alkylphosphine oxides. This method is also applicable to synthesize P-stereogenic phospholenes, and the resulting chiral phosphine was utilized as a ligand for coordination chemistry.
