Abstract

Elemental fluorine reacts with sodium trifluoroacetate to produce several oxidative compounds. When measures are taken to eliminate HF and water from the reaction, the dominant oxidant so formed is CF3CF2OF (1). Like F2 and CF3OF, stereospecific (syn addition) and regiospecific adducts. Basic treatment of some adducts causes only an HF elimination, although the choice at this state between anti and syn elimination cannot be clearly made.
