ROMPGel-supported triphenylphosphine was synthesized in three steps from norbornadiene, 4-bromoiodobenzene, and chlorodiphenylphosphine. The supported reagent has a high loading (2.5 mmol/g) and swells in organic solvents. It has been utilized for the conversion of alcohols to halides, the reduction of ozonides, and the isomerization of α,β-acetylenic esters and in the Staudinger reaction.
