Abstract

1,1,1-Trifluoro-2-arylethanes can be prepared by the trifluoromethyldehydroxylation of benzYl alcohols using the copper-dibromodifluoromethane-amide reaction system, although the yields are low. The mechanism of the reaction may involve chelation of the substrate to copper so that alpha-substituted benzyl alcohols and most other alcohols are unreactive.
