53_02i/2014Inside Cover: Kinetic Resolution of Allyl Fluorides by Enantioselective Allylic Trifluoromethylation Based on Silicon-Assisted C-F Bond CleavageZ308071 (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2/2014)

The first kinetic resolution of allyl fluorides was achieved by an enantioselective allylic trifluoromethylation that is catalyzed by a bis(cinchona alkaloid), as described by N. Shibata et al. in their Communication on page 517 ff. Two kinds of chiral fluorinated compounds, which incorporate C*-F and C*-CF3 units, respectively, can thus be accessed by a single transformation. Painting: “Mori” (“Forest”) by Mami Shibata; the way through a forest can lead to something exciting.
