Fluorination of styrene derivatives with a reagent system composed of μ-oxo-bis[trifluoroacetato(phenyl)iodine] or PhI(OCOCF3)2 and a pyridine·HF complex gave the corresponding (2,2-difluoroethyl)arenes in good yields. Catalytic conditions using 4-iodotoluene as a catalyst and m-CPBA as a terminal oxidant are possible.
