Abstract: SelectfluorTM F-TEDA-BF4 (1-chloromethyl-4-fluoro-1,4-diazoniabicyclo [2.2.2]octane bis(tetrafluoroborate) is not only one of the most efficient and popular reagents for electrophilic fluorination, but as a strong oxidant is also a convenient mediator or catalyst of several “fluorine-free” functionalizations of organic compounds. Its applications as a mediator in transformations of oxidizable functional groups or gold-catalyzed C-C and C-heteroatom oxidative coupling reactions, a catalyst in formation of various heterocyclic rings, a reagent or catalyst of various functionalizations of electron-rich organic compounds (iodination, bromination, chlorination, nitration, thiocyanation, sulfenylation, alkylation, alkoxylation), a catalyst of one-pot-multi-component coupling reactions, a catalyst of regioselective ring opening of epoxides, a deprotection reagent for various protecting groups, and a mediator for stereoselective rearrangement processes of bicyclic compounds are reviewed and discussed.
Keywords: SelectfluorTM F-TEDA-BF4; oxidative transformations; coupling reactions; halogenation
