Photoredox-catalyzed oxytrifluoromethylation of allenes: stereoselective synthesis of 2-trifluoromethylated allyl acetates

Author affiliations

Abstract

We have developed novel oxytrifluoromethylation of aryl-substituted allenes by photoredox catalysis. The present photocatalytic system allows direct and stereoselective synthesis of 2-CF3-allyl acetates bearing tetrasubstituted CF3-alkene scaffolds in a single operation. The obtained CF3-allyl acetates can be applied to further functionalization as CF3-containing building blocks.
