Rhodium(iii)-catalyzed mild benzylic α-fluoroalkenylation of 8-methylquinolines with gem-difluorostyrenes has been developed. This reaction occurred via C-H activation and C-F cleavage and is applicable to a wide range of substrates, leading to the synthesis of Z-alkenyl fluorides under mild and redox-neutral conditions with high regio- and… CONTINUE READING
