Abstract  B3LYP and CCSD(T) methods were employed to investigate the systems of R-C≡P(R=-BH2, -CH3,-NH2, -OH). The results indicate that isomers P≡C-BH2 and CH3-C≡P containing C≡P triple bond are thermodynamically the most stable species in BH2-C≡P and CH3-C≡P systems, respectively. But in the systems of HO-C≡P and NH2-C≡P, H-P=C=O and N≡C-PH2 containing C≡N triple bond are thermodynamically the most stable species, respectively. The calculated results on the kinetic stability indicate that for R-C≡P(R=-BH2,-NH2) systems, in which no experimental information are available, five isomers are kinetically stable. In HO-C≡P system, two kinetically stable species are located. Isomer H-P=C=O has been detected in experiment, and in view of higher kinetic stability, another isomer HO-C≡P should be experimentally observable. For CH3-C≡P system, isomer CH3-C≡P has been observed in experiment, and another kinetically stable isomer HC≡C-PH2 ought to be detected in future experiments.
