FeCl2 catalyzes a facile imidization of phosphines with N-acyloxyamides to provide synthetically useful N-acyliminophosphoranes with high functional group tolerance. The transformation can be scaled up to gram scale with a catalyst loading of 1 mol%. The iminophosphoranyl moiety is an effective directing group for Rh(III)-catalyzed ortho C(sp2)-H bond amidations.
