(Chemical Equation Presented) A reductive elimination of S-nitrosocysteines using phosphine substrates has been developed. This reaction converts unstable S-nitrosocysteines to dehydroalanine derivatives under very mild conditions. It can potentially be applied for the detection of protein S-nitrosation.
