Fluoromethylation. The C/O regioselectivity of β-ketoesters with fluorinated methylsulfoxinium salts 2 is discussed. Trifluoromethylation involves the formation of a more cationic species represented by +CF3 to provide C-alkylated products, while monofluoromethylation possibly proceeds involving a more radical-like species such as .CFH2 to give O-alkylated species. Difluoromethylation could involve both cationic and radical species, which afford a mixture of C and O isomers.
