Application as PR 2⊕ transfer reagents is for‐seen for the new inorganic magnesium reagents [Mg(PHPh)2] and the crystalline, monomeric title compound 1. The latter was prepared in high yield by monometalation of PhPH2 with the versatile reagent nBusBuMg and addition of TMEDA. In 1 the MgP distances are equal but the MgPC angles are not.
