The synthesis and structure of a series of novel phosphine ligands derived from the condensation of P(CH<sub>2</sub>NH<sub>2</sub>) with aldehydes are described. Depending on the reaction conditions, either substituted tris(iminomethyl)phosphine, P(CH<sub>2</sub>NCHR)<sub>3</sub>, or 1,3,5-triaza-7-phosphaadamantane structures substituted at the “lower rim”, PTAR<sub>3</sub>, are obtained.
