Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Allyl trifluoroethyl ethers 2a–2d were prepared; each underwent efficient dehydrofluorination/metallation and trapping to afford a range of difluoroenol silanes and stannanes which rearranged easily and efficiently to the acyl metals. Fluoride-mediated benzylation and allylation of an acylsilane, and Stille coupling of the vinyl- and acyl-stannane were achieved in moderate to good yield.
