A Weinreb amide approach to the synthesis of trifluoromethylketones

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel route to access trifluoromethylketones (TFMKs) from Weinreb amides is reported. This represents the first documented case of the Ruppert–Prakash reagent (TMS–CF3) reacting in a constructive manner with an amide and enables synthesis of TMFKs without risk of over-trifluoromethylation.
