Abstract

Readily-available 1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane (Klea HFC-134a) can be converted, via a two-pot sequence into a range of Z--fluoroalkenoyl derivatives following addition reactions to aldehydes. Reaction adducts can be processed into enals and enones upon hydride reduction or Grignard reagent addition in high yield.
