α-Aminophosphine-type ligands are of interest as building blocks of transition metal complexes. This review focuses on the utilization of α-aminophosphines as monodentate and bidentate ligands in platinum, palladium and rhodium complexes. Besides the linear derivatives, the applications of cyclic α-aminophosphines as ligands are also summarized. Various aspects, such as synthesis, structure and applications, as well as the catalytic activity of these complexes are discussed.
