Ruthenium‐Catalyzed Remote Electronic Activation of Aromatic CF Bonds
The tandem isomerization and nucleophilic aromatic substitution of allylic fluoro‐substituted benzylic alcohols is described for the first time. In the presence of the ruthenium complex Ru(PPh3)3(CO)(H)2, 1‐(4‐fluorophenyl)prop‐2‐en‐1‐ol is converted into the corresponding para‐amino ketone or para‐phenolic substituted ketone.
