Photocatalytic alkene reduction by a B12–TiO2 hybrid catalyst coupled with C–F bond cleavage for gem-difluoroolefin synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

Photocatalytic syntheses of gem-difluoroolefins were performed using the B12–TiO2 hybrid catalyst during the C[double bond, length as m-dash]C bond reduction of α-trifluoromethyl styrenes with C–F bond cleavage at room temperature under nitrogen. The gem-difluoroolefins were used as synthetic precursors for fluorinated cyclopropanes.
