1.2- and 1.3-Bis(trifluoroacetoxy) alcohols are easily obtained from the one-pot reaction of alkenes with phenyliodine(III) bis(trifluoroacetate) (PIFA) in the absence of any additive or catalyst. The products were converted into the corresponding diols by ammonolysis. The use of bicyclic alkenes has shown that rearranged 1,3-diacetoxy alcohols are mostly formed as the major products.
