Abstract:
Addition of the carbon–fluorine bond of a series of perfluorinated and polyfluorinated arenes across the Mg–Mg bond of a simple coordination complex proceeds rapidly in solution. The reaction results in the formation of a new carbon–magnesium bond and a new fluorine–magnesium bond and is analogous to Grignard formation in homogeneous solution.
