In recent years, the field of organic fluorine chemistry has developed rapidly. Fluorination and fluorine-containing functionalization reactions have attracted extensive attention of organic chemists due to their special physical and chemical properties. The introduction of fluorine-containing group into drug molecules can improve the biological activity of drug molecules. Trifluoromethoxy group has strong electron absorption and high lipophilicity, compounds containing trifluoromethoxy play an important role in the fields of medicine, pesticides and materials. In recent years, some innovative strategies have been used to synthesize compounds containing trifluoromethoxy group. This account mainly focuses on the research of trifluoromethoxy reaction in our group, and some challenges faced by trifluoromethoxy reaction.

Key words: trifluoromethoxylation, trifluoromethyl aryl sulfonate (TFMS), (E)-O-trifluoromethyl-benzaldoximes (TFBO)
