CF3 from Fluoroform Fluoroform (CF3H) is a by-product from the manufacture of fluorocarbon-based materials used, for example, in nonstick coatings and refrigerants. Fluoroform's potency as a greenhouse gas is a growing concern as supplies continue to accumulate. In this context, Prakash et al. (p. 1324; see the Perspective by Haufe) show that fluoroform can be used to transfer CF3 to silicon, sulfur, and carbon centers in the development of CF3-bearing pharmaceutical and agrochemical structures… Expand

Synthesis of gem-difluorinated cyclopropanes and cyclopropenes: trifluoromethyltrimethylsilane as a difluorocarbene source.
TLDR
Owing to the interaction of the lone pairs of electrons on the fluorine substituents with the carbene center, difluorocarbene is a relatively stabilized carbene species (with a singlet ground state) and is therefore less reactive than other dihalocarbenes. Expand
