C- or O-benzylation of 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds is one of the most fundamental methodologies for carbon-carbon or carbon-oxygen bond formation in organic synthesis.Perfluoroalkanosulfonyl fluoride(RfSO2F) is a class of excellent hy-droxyl-activating reagent,and has been extensively developed and used in the formation of C-F,C-O,C-N and C-S bonds in organic synthesis.In this work one-step C- or O-benzylation of 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds(1,3-diketones and β-ketonic esters) with benzyl alcohols promoted by RfSO2F in alkaline media was explored,and the corresponding C- or O-benzylation products were generated in medium to excellent yields.The optimized reaction conditions:1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene(DBU) as base,CH2Cl2 as solvent,n-C4F9SO2F,room temperature and the molar ratio of n(1,3-dicarbonyls):n(benzyl alco-hols):n(RfSO2F):n(DBU) is 1.0:1.0:1.0:2.2.A novel reagent system for the direct C- or O-benzylation of 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds with benzyl alcohols was developed.The application scope of RfSO2F in organic synthesis was further broadened.

Key words: perfluoroalkanosulfonyl fluoride, 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds, benzyl alcohols, benzylation
