Abstract

A variety of vinylic bromides and iodides undergo smooth trifluoromethylation and pentafluoroethylation with RfH-derived CuRf (Rf = CF3, C2F5) to give the corresponding fluoroalkylated olefins. These reactions employing the low-cost CuRf reagents occur in high yield with excellent chemo- and stereoselectivity under mild conditions (23–80 °C). Crystal structures of one trifluoromethyl and one pentafluoroethyl derivative have been determined.

  • 22 There are also certain advantages of perfluoroalkylation of vinylic halides over other synthetic means to build Rf-substituted olefin molecules.23–32 The Julia–Kocienski,23 Wittig,24 Horner,25a and Horner–Wadsworth–Emmons reactions25b,c are stereochemically nonselective, usually furnishing a mixture of Z and E isomers. The trifluoromethylation of alkenyl boron compounds26 requires an additional step as it employs substrates that are made from the corresponding halo olefins. Various X–CF3 addition reactions to alkynes27 are either limited in scope (X = H),27b,f leading to a mixture of stereoisomers, or introduce into the product molecule another substituent X that must be removed if not needed. A rather exotic enzyme-assisted perfluoroalkylation of alkynes with RfI led directly to the desired products, however, only in low yield.27h Direct C–H olefinic trifluoromethylation methods28 employ costly CF3 reagents, require directing groups, and have a limited substrate scope. Palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions are limited to only aromatic substrates.29 The decarboxylative vinylic trifluoromethylation of α,β-unsaturated carboxylic acids leads to trans products which are often contaminated with the corresponding cis-isomer.30 Perfluoroalkylated alkenes have been obtained by Reformatsky- or Grignard-type reactions of fluoroalkyl aldehydes with an organometallic compound and subsequent dehydratation of the formed alcohols.31 This approach leads to the mixtures of isomers and is not particularly high yielding. Perfluoroalkyl aldehyde hemiaminals have been used to prepare perfluoroalkylated olefins,32 but this method is limited to only enolizable carbonyl substrates.
