A micellar system was developed and applied for direct regioselective fluorination of various cyclic and acyclic ketones to α-fluoroketones in water as reaction medium with Selectfluor (F-TEDA-BF4) as fluorinating reagent. The inexpensive ionic amphiphile sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) was found to be an excellent promoter.
