This work describes a substrate-directed fluorination of some highly functionalized cyclopentane derivatives. The cyclic products incorporating CH2F or CHF2 moieties in their structure have been synthesized from diexo- or diendo-norbornene β-amino acids following a stereocontrolled strategy. The synthetic study was based on an oxidative transformation of the ring carbon–carbon double bond of the norbornene β-amino acids, followed by transformation of the resulted „all cis“ and „trans“ diformyl intermediates by fluorination with „chemodifferentiation“.
