Synthesis of Heteroaromatic Trifluoromethyl Ethers with Trifluo-romethyl Triflate as the Source of the Trifluoromethoxy Group

Abstract

A series of N-heterocycles have been transformed to the corresponding trifluoromethyl (perfluoroalkyl) ethers by reaction of the corresponding N-oxides with trifluoromethyl triflate. Trifluoromethyl triflate, which has generally been used as a precursor to [OCF3]-, is used here as a bifunctional reagent to render the heteroarene more electrophilic and to deliver the trifluoromethoxy group. This reagent was easily prepared on large scale (>100 grams) and is stable in either pure form or as a stock solution. Applications and limitations of this method are reported
