We present a zwitterionic triphosphenium molecule which features dicoordinate, tricoordinate and tetracoordinate phosphorus centers in addition to a cyclopentadienyl moiety. Crystallographic, computational, electrochemical and spectroscopic data illustrate and rationalize the reactivity of this molecule as a multifunctional ligand for both transition metals and main group acceptors and suggest how the donor properties may be tuned.
