Two birds, one stone! The first kinetic resolution of allyl fluorides was achieved by the development of an organocatalyzed enantioselective allylic trifluoromethylation. Two kinds of chiral fluorinated compounds, which incorporate C*[BOND]F and C*[BOND]CF3 units, respectively, can thus be accessed by a single transformation.
