The fluorination of some highly-functionalized cyclopentene derivatives, obtained from various substituted cyclohexenes through a ring-opening/ring-contraction procedure, has been investigated. The transformations were found to be highly substrate dependent, and led to the formation of various functionalized alicyclic compounds or heterocycles containing allyl difluoride or vinyl fluoride moieties.
