With the increasing importance of fluorine to medicinal chemistry and other areas, methods to access various fluorinated compounds are needed. Herein, we report the synthesis of difluoropropargyl vinyl ethers from ketones and aldehydes using difluoropropargyl bromide dicobalt complexes. We applied difluoropropargyl vinyl ethers to the synthesis of difluorodienone or difluoroallene under thermal conditions and trifluoro-pyran under acid-catalyzed conditions.
