Synthesis of monofluoroalkenes through selective hydrodefluorination of gem-difluoroalkenes with Red-Al®

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel and practical approach for the selective hydrodefluorination of gem-difluoroalkenes using Red-Al® as a reductant at room temperature in CH2Cl2 without any additional base and metal catalyst was reported. Various monofluoroalkenes were obtained in moderate to high yields with good E-selectivity.
