Controllable double CF2-insertion into sp2 C–Cu bond using TMSCF3: a facile access to tetrafluoroethylene-bridged structures

Author affiliations

Abstract

A highly efficient method for controllable double CF2-insertion into pentafluorophenylcopper species using TMSCF3 as difluoromethylene source has been developed. The newly generated fluoroalkylcopper(I) species, C6F5CF2CF2Cu, shows good reactivity towards a myriad of structurally diverse aryl, heteroaryl and alkenyl iodides. This protocol is easy to handle, ready to scale up and applicable for the synthesis of relative complex molecules, thus providing a convenient method for facile access to tetrafluoroethylene-bridged structures.
