Penta-coordinated phosphoranes (ab2) with a five-member cycle and three ligands would simultaneously exchange with themselves under base catalysis to form three different penta-oxy phosphoranes with all the combinatorial ligands referred as a3, b3, and a2b. If we consider a3 and b3 as parents, the products obtained from exchange, namely a2b and ab2, could be regarded as the offspring of the first generation, leading to the diversified chemical structures. Thus, these fascinating reactions could be considered as a promising chemical model for studying the unique chemistry of possible penta-coordinated phosphorus intermediates in the process of RNA self-splicing, hydrolysis and fusion for gene transcription and biological information storage.

Key words: phosphorus chemistry, penta-oxy phosphorane, ligand exchange, organic chemical model
