Regioselective elimination of a vicinal bis-triflate having an adjacent ether oxygen functional group has been developed. Considered in the context of our studies of the regioselective elimination of vicinal dibromide, the key to the mechanism involves the electron-withdrawing inductive effect of the neighboring oxygen functional group. Aliphatic vinyl triflate was shown to be effective in Suzuki–Miyaura cross coupling compared with corresponding aliphatic vinyl bromide.
