Conference paper


A novel electrochemical partial fluorination of α, β-unsaturated esters efficiently took place accompanied by the rearrangement of the β-substituted alkyl groups to the α-position to afford gem-β,β-difluoroesters in good yields under the pulse electrolysis conditions using Et3N-5HF electrolyte.
