Abstract

The oxidative desulfurization-fluorination of orthothioesters of type RCH2C(SMe)3 using n-Bu4NH2F3 and 1,3-dibromo-5,5-dimethylhydantoin gave bromodifluorination products RCHBrCF2SMe in good yields. The products were converted into bromodifluoro olefins RCBr=CF2 via oxidation and thermolysis. In a similar way, the orthothioesters of type RCH(OH)C(SMe)3 or RCH(OAc)C(SMe)3 were fluorinated to afford difluoro ketones RCOCF2-SMe or difluoro acetates RCH(OAc)CF2SMe, respectively. The difluoro acetates were reduced to RCH(OAc)CF2H by radical reduction. The mechanisms are discussed for difluorination accompanied by bromination or oxidation.
