Substrate-dependent fluorinations of several highly functionalized cycloalkanes with multiple stereocentres were investigated. The synthetic transformations were based on selective functionalization of the ring C=C bonds of the readily available bicyclic β-lactams by epoxidation and regioselective nucleophilic oxirane opening with azide or cyanide, followed by hydroxy-fluorine exchange with Deoxofluor. Depending on the substituents and their relative steric arrangement, the attempted fluorinations produced different types of substituted cycloalkanes. These selective, substrate-directed synthetic procedures and their presumed pathways towards interesting highly functionalized fluorinated cycloalkane scaffolds were investigated.
