The ylide route to fluorodienes

Ylides Ph3P+C-RR1 (R = H, Me; R1 = OMe, Cl, Me, Pr, Ph, CO2Me) underwent Wittig reaction with fluoroalkenals MeCR2:CFCHO (R2 = H, Me) to give 52-95% MeCR2:CFCH:CRR1. This reaction occurred at approx. the same rate, and gave nearly the same Z-E mixts., as the corresponding nonfluorinated aldehydes. [on SciFinder (R)]
