Abstract

Recently, with the appearance of electrophilic sources of fluorine including the commercially available N−F reagents, the concept of electrophilic fluorodesilylation has emerged as a new strategy to prepare a variety of fluorine containing compounds. This paper highlights how this concept has been applied to the preparation of a series of fluorinated molecules including fluoroaromatic compounds, fluoroalkenes, difluoroamides, difluoroalcohols, difluoroethers and α-fluorinated carbonyl derivatives.
