F-alkyl iodides readily reacted with a variety of alkenes in methanol at room temperature under the influence of metallic tin(0)-silver(I) acetate of metallic tin(0)-copper(I) chloride to afford the corresponding addition products, F- alkylated iodides, in good to excellent yields. This addition reaction was also promoted by the use of a metallic tin(0)- aluminium(0) reagent, though gentle heating was necessary for allowing the reaction to proceed.
