Short Communications


The reaction of N,N′-methylenebis(trifluoromethanesulfonamide) with styrene in the oxidative system t-BuOCl/NaI affords triflamide, 2-iodo-1-phenylethanol, N,N′-bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)urea, and the product of styrene bistriflamidation. The mechanism is proposed involving hydrolysis and oxidation of the starting N,N′-methylenebis(trifluoromethanesulfonamide).
