Photocatalytic syntheses of gem-difluoroolefins were performed using the B12-TiO2 hybrid catalyst during the CC bond reduction of α-trifluoromethyl styrenes with C-F bond cleavage at room temperature under nitrogen. The gem-difluoroolefins were used as synthetic precursors for fluorinated cyclopropanes.
