Cyclopropane carboxylic acid derivatives can be converted into trifluoromethyl group-containing compounds using SF4. In the case of a bicyclic cyclopropane carboxylic acid lactone, similar treatment with sulphur tetrafluoride resulted in the cyclopropane ring opening in a diastereoselective manner.
