Fluorination of Organosilanes

Enantiopure N-fluorocinchona alkaloids promoted the electrophilic fluorodesilylation of allyl silanes in a conceptually new approach to the regio- and enantioselective formation of allylic fluorides (see scheme). Excellent conversions were observed in these reactions, which afforded the desired allylic fluorides with up to 96% ee.
