The combination of Pd(OAc)2/Et3SiH enables ligand-controlled non-decarbonylative and decarbonylative conversions of acyl fluorides. When tricyclohexylphosphine (PCy2) was used as the ligand, aldehydes were obtained as simple reductive conversion products, whereas 1,2-bis(dicyclohexylphosphino)ethane (Cy2P(CH2)2PCy2, DCPE) as the ligand favored the formation of hydrocarbons as decarbonylative reduction products.
