The highly regioselective anodic monofluorination of 2-substituted 1,3-oxathiolan-5-ones was successfully carried out using a novel supporting electrolyte, Et(4)NF.4HF, while use of a conventional supporting electrolyte, Et(3)N.3HF, resulted in no formation or extremely low yields of the fluorinated products.
