Efficient synthesis of phenyl α-fluorovinyl sulfones via Julia olefination will be presented. The appropriate fluorinated benzothiazolyl based bis-sulfone reagent was prepared and subjected to condensations with aldehydes and ketones under mild conditions. Stereoselectivity of reactions and comparison of reactivity of this novel reagent to the Horner Wadsworth Emmons reagent will be demonstrated.
