A rhodium-catalyzed exchange reaction of diphosphine disulfides, a diphosphine oxide, and a diphosphine is developed. Various symmetric diphosphine disulfides containing alkyl and phenyl groups are exchanged, giving equilibrium mixtures, from which unsymmetric diphosphine disulfides are readily separated by silica gel chromatography. The resulting unsymmetric diphosphine disulfide is regioselectively added to an aldehyde.
