Fluorination of alkenyllithium reagents can be accomplished in acceptable yield under conditions which give rise to low competitive alkene formation. These reactions are abetted by the use of the low temperature soluble, mild fluorinating agent N-fluoro-N-tert-butylbenzenesulfonamide; "simpler" fluorinating reagents such as F2, XeF2 or FCIO3 failed to give acceptable amounts of the fluoroolefin with these alkenyllithiums.
