A facile procedure for synthesis of trans-3-fluoro-2-substituted piperidines by utilizing electrophilic fluorination of cyclic enamines and Lewis acid mediated nucleophilic substitution has been developed. Also, optically active trans-2-allyl-3-fluorinated pyrrolidines have been prepared by utilizing nucleophilic fluorination of hydroxyl group of trans-hydroxy-L-proline and Lewis acid mediated diastereoselective allylation as key steps.
