New Paper on Radical Trifluoromethoxylation in Chem Eur J
In our latest paper in collaboration with the Riedel group, bis(trifluoromethyl)peroxide (BTMP) is applied as a new reagent for the radical trifluoromethoxylation of arenes and heteroarenes. BTMP can be synthesised from the inexpensive bulk compounds CO and F2 and serves as an attractive source of •OCF3 radicals using either photoredox or TEMPO catalysis. The paper has been published in Chemistry - A European Journal and can be read here:
Congratulations to the first author Stefan and thanks to Paul and Jonas in the Riedel group (https://www.bcp.fu-berlin.de/en/chemie/chemie/forschung/InorgChem/agriedel/index.html) for a great collaboration!
