This chapter seeks to provide an overview of the main classes of phosphorus–chalcogen‐containing compounds, their coordination chemistry with metallic and semi‐metallic elements and some of their applications (including in organic synthesis protocols, pesticides and nerve agents, precursors to metal chalcogenides thin films and nanoparticles, metal extraction technologies, and lubricant additives). The analogous compounds containing the heavier congeners of phosphorus (arsenic, antimony, and bismuth) are also discussed where appropriate, and compared to their phosphorus analogues. Given the huge amount of published material on chalcogen–phosphorus compounds this chapter is inevitably selective and focuses in particular on perceived key advances in these areas.
