A refreshing cascade: General fluorocyclization reactions will breathe new life into the use of fluorinated hetero- and carbocycles as pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals. Allyl silanes have now been shown to undergo fluorination–cyclization with NF reagents to give cis- and trans-substituted fluorinated heterocycles selectively (see scheme). The correct choice of silyl group was critical to prevent competitive fluorodesilylation.
