A silver bullet: The title reaction results in selective formation of trifluoromethylated alkanes, and is in contrast to the previously reported transition-metal-catalyzed trifluoromethylation of olefins to generate a series of trifluoromethylated allylic compounds. Preliminary mechanistic investigations indicate that the current hydrotrifluoromethylation proceeds through a pathway involving a CF3 radical species.
