Fluoroalkylated copper(III) complexes
Copper(III) complexes often exhibit unique reactivity properties. We prepared novel Cu(III) trifluoromethyl complexes with 1,3-diketonate ligands. They are bench stable and well soluble in organic solvents. With these complexes we demonstrated aromatic C-H trifluoromethylation and trifluoromethylation of alkynes and thiols (Advanced Synthesis & Catalysis 365: 2858, 2023).
