[52118-96-4] · C8CeF12O8 · Cerium(IV) Trifluoroacetate · (MW 592.17)
(oxidizing agent for aromatic hydrocarbons)
Solubility: sol acetone, DME, DMSO, acetonitrile, TFA containing lithium trifluoroacetate; insol chloroform, dichloromethane, benzene.
Form Supplied in: yellow solid.
Preparative Methods: by the reaction of cerium(IV) hydroxide with TFA to give the basic salt Ce(OH)2(O2CCF3)2, which on further treatment with TFA and its anhydride affords the desired reagent.1 Thus far the reagent has only been used in the crude state without purification.
Handling, Storage, and Precautions: is sensitive to moisture and light and should therefore be stored under nitrogen and protected from light.
Cerium(IV) trifluoroacetate reacts instantaneously at room temperature with methylbenzenes to give coupling products.1 For example, Reaction of Tsuneo Imamoto Chiba University, Japan
