Abstract

{[}(CH(3))(2)Pt(mu-SMe(2))](2)catalyzes the formation of aryl methyl ethers via selective C-F bond activation of polyfluoroarylimines. This reaction is functional group tolerant and proceeds in good to excellent yields. The optimization and preliminary substrate scope of this process are described.
