TMSCF3 and tetrabutylammonium (triphenylsilyl) difluorosilicate (TBAT) were used for efficient nucleophilic trifluoromethylation to N-tosyl aldimines. Aromatic, aliphatic and α,β-unsaturated sulfonaldimines were efficiently trifluoromethylated to obtain the corresponding sulfonamide adducts in good to excellent yields.
