Epub 2004 Sep 3.The new ionic liquids (5a-8a) were used as reaction media for nucleophilic trifluoromethylation reactions of trifluoromethyl(trimethyl)silane with (1) aryl, allyl, benzyl, and alkyl halides in Cu(I)-mediated C-C bond formation reactions, and (2) carbonyl functionalities catalyzed with Ph3P or CsF. In addition, conversion of benzyl bromide as a model compound to benzyl fluoride was examined in using 6a CsF as the fluorinating reagent. Read More
