Pd-catalyzed Mizoroki-Heck reaction of [Ph2SR][OTf] with alkenes

Fluoroalkyl(diaryl)sulfonium salts are conventional but useful synthetic reagents in the preparation of functional molecules. S-Trifluoromethyl(diaryl)sulfonium salts, known as the Yagupolskii-Umemoto reagents ([Ar2SCF3]X (X = OTf, BF4)) and initially exploited as electrophilic +CF3 transfer sources for a variety

Alkene synthesis – any way you want it

An alkene is a molecule containing two carbon atoms connected by a double bond, C=C (Fig. 1A). Alkenes are very common but their proper preparation requires careful attention to the placement of the four groups (Ri, i
