Diphenyl(trifluoromethyl)sulfonium trifluoromethanesulfonate(Ph2SCF3]+[OTf]-) is a versatile,shelf-stable reagent for electrophilic trifluoromethylation of various nucleophiles, such as heteroaromatic compounds,benzyl bromides,arylboronic acids,terminal alkynes,α,β-unsaturated ketones and propargyl acetates, etc.. It reacts with Na2S2O4 or HOCH2SO2Na under suitable conditions to generate CF3 radical for the synthesis of α-trifluoromethylated ketones.
