An oxy-palladation, formal Wagner-Meerwein rearrangement and fluorination cascade has been established for generating fluorinated oxazolidine-2,4-diones and oxazolidin-2-ones. The reaction has a broad substrate scope in which both aryl and alkyl groups can be utilized as efficient migrating groups. Experimental evidence suggests that the reaction is initiated by anti-oxy-palladation of the olefin, followed by oxidative generation of an alkyl PdIV intermediate and a concerted migration-fluorination.
