Abstract

Catalytic hydrodehalogenation (HDH) of aliphatic organohalides such as trifluorotoluenes by Et3SiH proceeds in the presence of readily available group 4 metal compounds: Cp′2MX2 (Cp′ = η5-C5H5 or η5-C5Me5; X = F, Cl, or Me; M = Ti, Zr, or Hf), CpTiCl3 and TiCl4 with a catalytic amount of B(C6F5)3. The use of metallocenes in combination with the borane activator leads to a better selectivity of the reaction, i.e., suppression of Friedel–Crafts alkylations of arenes.
