A Broadly Applicable Copper Reagent for Trifluoromethylations and Perfluoroalkylations of Aryl Iodides and Bromides
Well compatible: The trifluoromethylations and perfluoroalkylations of aryl iodides and some aryl bromides with trifluoromethyl and perfluoroalkylcopper(I) phenanthroline complexes occur with broad scope at 25–50 °C (see scheme). The trifluoromethyl complex is prepared from inexpensive reagents and can be used in situ or isolated. The reactions tolerate a range of substituents and also occur with heteroaromatic systems.
