Abstract

Reactions of chloro- and nitro-aromatics with low water content solutions of TMAF in DMSO can lead to complex product mixtures resulting from activation of DMSO by fluoride and the formation of DMSO-derived products. Also, the system has been shown to give hydrolysis products in addition to the well-known ethers and phenols, with carboxylic acids and benzamides being formed from the attempted fluorodenitration of substituted benzonitriles.
