Abstract

A convenient and simple three-step pathway to the new family of CF2CF2S-bridged alkanes and CF2S-, CF2O-bridged alkenes and alkynes was elaborated by using catalytic olefination reaction as a key step of the synthetic sequence. The obtained compounds revealed attractive liquid crystalline characteristics.
