Visible-light-induced synthesis of a variety of trifluoromethylated alkenes from potassium vinyltrifluoroborates by photoredox catalysis

Author affiliations

Abstract

A facile synthesis of trifluoromethylated alkenes by the radical-mediated trifluoromethylation of vinyltrifluoroborates has been developed. Togni's reagent serves as a CF3 radical precursor in the presence of the photoredox catalyst [Ru(bpy)3](PF6)2 under visible light irradiation. This new photocatalytic protocol can be applicable to a wide variety of vinylborates containing electronically diverse substituents and hetero-aromatics.
