The difunctionalization of unsaturated carbon-carbon double bond is a powerful strategy for the construction
of compounds with various functional groups. The present review aims to highlight the recent developments
in the fluorination of alkenes with concomitant introduction of additional functional groups. Various methods
are described for both intramolecular and intermolecular fluorofunctionalization of alkenes. These fluorofunctionalization
processes should find broad applications in pharmaceutical and material industries.
Keywords: Alkene, difunctionalization, fluorine, intermolecular, intramolecular, regioselective.
