Abstract

This article portrays the development of a novel and efficient synthetic route to β-aminofluoroalkenes, from readily available 3,3-difluoropropenes and amines, that proceeds via the activation of an allylic C-F bond.

  • 12 Herein, the term ‘oxidative addition’ is used broadly to define the insertion of a metal complex into a covalent bond, formally involving an overall two-electron loss at the metal. However, a more rigorous term would be to describe this transformation as an ‘electrophilic addition’, as the mechanism most likely proceeds by a nucleophilic substitution pathway where the leaving group is not bound to the metal.
