Alpha Fluorination of Ketones by F+ Transfer Using a Precursor of MnF4
Published: 01 November 2004 by MDPI in The 8th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session General Organic Synthesis
Abstract: Alpha fluorination of ketones is carried out under very mild conditions by using manganese (IV) dioxide and pyridinium polyhydrogenofluoride. Working up is simple and yields are good. Results are consistent with the couple MnO2 / PyHF acting as a precursor of manganese (IV) tetrafluoride formed in situ.
Keywords: manganese (IV) dioxide; manganese (IV) tetrafluoride; alpha fluoroketones
