Arylation of perfluoroalkyl vinyl sulfoxides via the Heck reaction
Tetrahedron Lett. 2015, 56 (10), 1259-1262
Heck reactions of perfluoroalkyl vinyl sulfoxides with aryl iodides are studied and palladium(II) acetate is shown to be the most convenient catalyst for this process. New E-1-aryl-2-perfluoroalkylsulfinylethylenes are synthesized. In all cases, by-products without a perfluoroalkylsulfinyl group are formed.
