Abstract

Silylene (1) cleaves the C(sp(3))-H and C-F bonds of acetophenone and 1,1,1-trifluoroacetophenone, respectively, under mild conditions. The reaction is initiated via a nucleophilic attack from the oxygen to the silicon atom followed by C-F/H bond cleavage. The scope of C-F bond activation has further been extended with C6F6 and C6F5CF3.
