Abstract: Results are reported on the efficiency of polyfluorooctanol as a perfluorousauxiliary component in the aldol reaction between the enolate derived frompolyfluorooctyl acetate and 2-fluorobenzaldehyde. Reduction of the correspondingpolyfluoro β-hydroxy ester with Super Hydride® gave the required 1,3-diol in good yield.
Keywords: Aldol Reaction; Carbon-Carbon Bond Formation; Selective Extraction
