Abstract

Although the direct anodic fluorination of 3-phenyl-2H-1,4-benzoxazine was not very effective, the fluorodesulfurization of 3-aryl-2-(phenylsulfanyl)-2H-1,4-benzoxazines using various anodically generated halogen mediators in the presence of triethyl­amine tris(hydrogen fluoride) by an ex-cell method efficiently and selectively provided the corresponding monofluorinated products. In sharp contrast, in-cell halogen mediators did not work well. Furthermore, the selective fluorodesulfurization of pyrido[3,2-b][1,4]oxazine derivatives was also successfully carried out using the same ex-cell method to provide the corresponding monofluorinated products in moderate yields.

When 0.5 equivalent of molecular iodine were used under the ex-cell method conditions, the corresponding monofluorinated product 4a was obtained in only 45% yield.
