gem-Difluorocyclopropanation of Alkenyl Trifluoroborates with the CF3SiMe3-NaI System
Eur. J. Org. Chem. 2020, (15), 2217-2224
Difluorocyclopropanation of alkenyl trifluoroborates using TMSCF3–NaI system was reported for the first time. The developed method allowed preparation of monocyclic, spiro‐ and fused‐bicyclic gem‐difluorocyclopropanes bearing additional functional groups. The preparation of potassium (2,2‐difluorocyclopropyl)trifluoroborates was achieved in up to 90% yield on a multigram scale.
