A copper-catalyzed diphenylation of P(O)−OH bonds with cyclic diaryliodonium salts is described. Valuable 2′-iodo substituted biaryl phosphinic/phosphoric acid esters were obtained in good to excellent yields, which could be further transformed to diversified building blocks for the synthesis of bioactive compounds, pharmaceuticals and functional materials.
