Generation and some reactions of bis(trifluoromethyl)aza anion


  1. 1.

    Perfluoro-2-azapropene when passed through a suspension of alkali-metal fluorides in aprotic polar solvents generates the bis(trifluoromethyl)aza anion.

  2. 2.

    Reactions involving (CF3)3N are a convenient way of inserting the bis(trifluoromethyl)amino group into various organic compounds.
