Alkaline hydrolysis of 1,3-dibromo-1,1-difluoroalkanes: a two-step vinyl carboxylation scheme
This report discusses a new two-step synthesis of a,~-unsaturated carboxylic acids from alkenes. The first step is the radical addition of dibromodifluoromethane to the alkenes, and the second step is the alkaline hydrolysis of the 1,3-dibromo-1, 1-difluoroalkanes. Evidence for competing mechanistic pathways for the hydrolysis is presented along with detailed proposals for the mechanism. Complete spectral data for the 1,3-dibromo-1, 1-difluoroalkanes and the a,~- unsaturated carboxylic acids are included.
