A novel and highly efficient Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling of triarylbismuths with various P(O)-H compounds proceeds smoothly without exclusion of moisture or air and provides valuable arylphosphonates, arylphosphinates, and arylphosphine oxides, with high atom-economy, operational simplicity of the procedure, and good to high yield.
