Phosphines constitute key organophosphorus reagents that are being widely used in industry as well as in research laboratories since over a century. Specifically, in last two decades, there have been numerous reports on phosphine-mediated and phosphine-catalyzed reactions. In terms of industrial application, phosphine-mediated reactions have received much attention when compared to the catalytic versions for the synthesis of a variety of structurally diverse organic frameworks. In this digest review, we wish to summarize the recent advances (2014–2017) in phosphine-mediated reactions that are primarily based on stoichiometric application of phosphine.
