Abstract

Synthetic approaches to produce reactive chemical building blocks from fluorinated molecules by the functionalization of carbon–fluorine bonds with main group reagents are reviewed. The reaction types can be categorized as: (i) the formal 1,2-addition of C–F bonds across Si–Si, B–B, or Mg–Mg bonds; (ii) the oxidative addition of C–F bonds to Si(II), Ge(II), and Al(I) centres; and (iii) the dehydrogenative coupling of C–F bonds with Al–H or B–H bonds. Many of the advances have emerged between 2015–2016 and are largely focused upon aromatic substrates that contain sp2 C–F bonds.
