Phosphorous ion in solution and subsequent electromigration?

  1. Jan 29, 2014 #1
    Hi there,

    I would like to know if it possible at all to have phosphorous ions in solution ie P^3- so that I can electromigrate them towards a surface. As I currently understand, this ion is under the phosphide compounds group, and is the least electronegative. For any P electromigration towards the surface to take place I currently understand that it has to be in as elemental as possible ie P^3.

    My aim is to attract phosphorous atoms towards a surface and to then diffuse them into the material providing the surface using other means.

    I am not very experienced with chemistry and am not quite sure how engineer this.
