Abstract

The reactions of fluorinated ylide, generated from tris(dimethylamino) phosphine and tribromofluoromethane, with simple aldehydes and reactive ketones gave the expected Wittig reaction products. However, a ketone having a galactose skeleton afforded an acid fluoride, probably through an unprecedented CoreyChaykovski- type epoxide formation reaction, followed by spontaneous Meinwald rearrangement.
