The regioselective carbon-carbon bond formation was studied using 5,5,5-trifluoro-1-phenylpent-3-en-1-yne as a model substrate, and predominant acceptance of electrophiles β to a CF3 group as well as a deuterium trap experiment of the lithiated species led to the conclusion that the obtained regioselectivity is kinetically determined for the reactions with(More)
Following to the computational expectation, our previously reported intriguing 1,3-proton shift of 4,4,4-trifluorobut-2-yn-1-ols was successfully extended to the 4,4,4-trifluorobut-2-en-1-ol system under metal-free conditions to afford the corresponding saturated ketones in high to excellent chemical yields using such a convenient and easy-to-handle base as(More)
β-Substituted α-fluoro-α,β-unsaturated carboxylic acids have been successfully synthesized, usually in a (Z)-stereospecific manner by way of a stepwise or a one-pot three-step procedure starting from 2-chloro-1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane (HCFC-124), one of the major byproducts of the industrial process for tetrafluoroethene formation from chlorofluoromethane(More)
