Hafnium triflate was identified as a highly efficient catalyst for the synthesis of a diversity of fluorinated benzimidazolines, benzoxazolines, and benzothiozolines. For the first time, more complicated N-substituted benzimidazolines were synthesized via the Hf(OTf)4-catalyzed method. With the assistance of 19F NMR, the catalytic roles of Hf(IV) on the activation of fluorinated ketone and fluorinated imine intermediate were revealed.
