Pd-catalyzed olefination of perfluoroarenes with allyl esters.

Abstract

An efficient Pd(II)-catalyzed direct olefination of perfluoroarenes with allyl esters is demonstrated. Under the typical conditions, the coupling reaction of fluorinated-arenes with allylic esters proceeded via a β-H elimination rather than a β-OAc elimination to give the corresponding γ-substituted allylic esters.
