A method for hydrofluoroalkylation of alkenes with trifluoroacetic esters under visible light irradiation affords difluorinated products using readily available trimethyltriazinane as a stoichiometric reducing agent. The cleavage of the C-F bond by a triazinane-derived radical involves a single electron reduction coupled with fluoride transfer.
