Title

Gem-Difluorination of 2,2-diaryl-1,3-dithiolanes by Selectfluor® and Pyridinium Polyhydrogen Fluoride

Abstract

2,2-Diaryl-1,3-dithiolanes, readily obtainable from diaryl ketones, were transformed into the corresponding gem-difluoro compounds using a novel reagent combination involving SelectfluorH and pyridinium polyhydrogen fluoride (PPHF) under mild conditions in moderate to good yields.
