The [4+2] cycloaddition reaction between 2-pyrone and Me3Si−C≡P gives the corresponding 2-(trimethylsilyl)-λ3-phosphinine in good yields as a rather air and moisture stable, colorless oil. Insight into the regioselectivity of the pericyclic reaction was obtained with the help of deuterium-labeling experiments. The silyl-phosphinine acts as a ligand for the preparation of a Cu(I) and the first crystallographically characterized phosphinine-Ag(I) complex. The title compound was further used as a starting material for an alternative preparation of the parent phosphinine C5H5P by means of protodesilylation with HCl. C5H5P reacts with CuBr⋅S(CH3)2 to give an infinite Cu(I)Br coordination polymer. DFT calculations shed light on the influence of the -Si(CH3)3 group on the electronic properties of the aromatic phosphorus heterocycle.
