PhCF2Cl suffered readily one-electron reduction with SmI2 to give PhCF2 radical and chloride ion. The resulting PhCF2 radical was further reduced with SmI2 to PhCF2SmI2 which reacted with electrophile such as Me3SiCl. The initially formed PhCF2 radical could be trapped by olefin or acetylene before it was reduced to PhCF2SmI2.
