A hitherto unknown triphosphatricyclo[,7]oct-3-ene was obtained in high yield by a total of four consecutive pericyclic reactions from di-2-pyrone and excess TMS-CP. DFT calculations gave insight into the reaction mechanism. The chiral phosphorus cage readily forms coordination compounds with Au(i) and Cu(i).
