2,2,2-Trichloro-1-aryl-ethanones undergo high yielding reductions to the corresponding 2,2-dichloro-1-aryl-ethanones in the presence of RMgX. A single electron transfer mechanism for the reaction is proposed based on trapping experiments. Reaction of the intermediate enolates with a range of electrophiles is described, providing a convenient route to substituted α,α-dichloro-β-hydroxy-ketones and related molecules.
