Organic compounds, such as triphenylacetic acid, triphenyl ethylene, and triethyl phosphite can be selectively fluorinated in dimethylsulfoxide/ HgF2 solutions under UV-visible illumination. Product yields, determined by 19F-NMR, are essentially quantitative for the compounds studied, and in some cases only a single fluorinated product is formed.
