The electrochemical reduction of diphenylphosphinate esters leads smoothly and in high yields to the corresponding deoxygenated products. In comparison with the previously developed methodologies, the electrolysis could be performed at lower temperature and with a higher current density, resulting in a shorter reaction time.
