The direct fluorination reaction of acetophenone derivatives, acetonaphthones, benzyl phenyl ketone, propiophenone, butyrophenone, 1-indanone, and phenacyl chloride using iodosylarenes and TEA·5HF gives the corresponding α-fluoroketone derivatives in good yields under mild conditions except for use of a HF reagent.
