Nucleophilic addition of sulfenyl chlorides to highly electrophilic fluoroolefins

  • 25 Accesses


  1. 1.

    When catalyzed by chlorine anion or pyridine, alkyl- or arylsulfenyl chlorides add to perfluoroisobutylene or to methyl perfluoromethacrylate by the nucleophilic mechanism.

  2. 2.

    Perfluoroisobutylene when reacted with either trichloromethyl- or chlorocarbonylsulfenyl chloride in the presence of chlorine anion adds chlorine at the multiple bond.
