- Classic direct synthetic methods failed to transform bis(perfluororalkylallyl) dioxyethylene ether into the corresponding bis(perfluoroalkyl oxirane). This transformation was instead realized using a mixture of mercuric acetate/bromine to produce the corresponding bromoacetate, which was subsequently transformed to a bromohydrin and further to bis(perfluoroalkyl oxirane) through the use of triethylbenzyl ammonium chloride as a phase transfer catalyst in alkaline media.
