The first α- and β-chiral water-soluble trialkylmonophosphines, 1 and 2, respectively, both with C3symmetry, were synthesised from sodium phosphide and chiral mesylates, accessible from (S)-ethyl lactate. X-ray structures of a corresponding 2:1 gold(I) complex [12Au(I)]OTf and of a borane complex 2·BH3were determined. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
