P-F Bond Formation

Recent Literature

An efficient electrophilic fluorination of secondary phosphine oxides with Selectfluor provides direct access to phosphoric fluorides in good yield under mild conditions. In addition, one-pot P-O bond construction is achieved in the presence of water or alcohols to provide phosphinic acids or phosphinates.

A sulfone iminium fluoride (SIF) reagent promotes a deoxyfluorination of phosphinic acids in just 60 s with excellent yields and scope. The same P(V)-F products can also be synthesized from secondary phosphine oxides.
