The first example of a phosphenium trication has been prepared by using the exceptional nucleophilic properties of a carbodicarbene ligand. According to theoretical investigations the trication contains quite polarized P-C bonds suggesting a substantial contribution from the dative bond model. As one of the resonance forms for the title compound depicted a hypervalent phosphoranide we also showed that phosphoranides, in general, do not contain a hypervalent P centre. © The 2016 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
