A new general methodology for the synthesis of 1,1,1-trihaloalditols by starting from 1,5-anhydro-2-deoxy-hex-1-enitol derivatives (glycals) is described. The halogens are introduced sequentially in each of the three different steps of the process. The fluorine is introduced in the first step by electrophilic fluorination of the starting glycal; next, hydroxyhalogenation of the resulting vinyl fluoride allows the addition of any halogen (F, Cl, Br or I) at will, and finally, an iodine atom is inserted through an alkoxyl radical fragmentation reaction. This methodology allows the preparation of diverse types of 1,1,1-trihalogenated compounds (RCF2I, RCFI2, RCFClI and RCFBrI) under mild conditions compatible with sensitive substituents. In some cases, the diastereomeric mixtures generated from RCFClI and RCFBrI can be chromatographically separated, and their configuration determined by X-ray crystallographic analysis. The synthetic usefulness of these compounds has been preliminarily assessed by examining the reactivity of the fluorinated radical generated by rupture of the CI bond.

ABSTRACT: A highly regio- and stereoselective sequential carbometallation and Z-selective β-elimination reaction of 5-perfluoroalkyl-4(E)-en-2-ynols with Grignard reagents in Et2O has been developed to afford various 6-perfluoroalkyl-6-fluoroalka-2,3,5(Z)-trienols in good to excellent yields. Primary or secondary alkyl or aryl Grignard reagents may be used to introduce the R2 group to the 2-position of the starting materials referring to the hydroxyl group. A mechanism for this transformation has been proposed.

ABSTRACT: In a comparative study, reactions between 5-(p-methoxyphenyl)-substituted 3-alkoxy-4-methylthiazole-2(3H)-thiones and appropriate mediators (BrCCl3, Bu3SnH) provided higher yields of alkoxyl radical products (δ-bromohydrins, cyclic ethers, carbonyl compounds) than respective transformations of 5-phenyl- and 5-methyl-substituted derivatives. The unusual selectivity of applied thiohydroxamates to furnish products of O-alkylation, even upon treatment with soft carbon electrophiles, and the marked propensity of 3-alkoxy-5-(p-methoxyphenyl)-4-methylthiazole-2(3H)-thiones to crystallize, facilitated preparation and purification of the new family of alkoxyl radical precursors in a noteworthy manner.
