Enantiomerically enriched fluorinated benzo-fused bicyclic homoallylic amines have been synthesized through an asymmetric allylation/ring closing metathesis (RCM) sequence. This sequence has been carried out using α-trifluoromethylstyrene derivatives as key intermediates, synthesized by microwave radiation. The great deactivating effect exerted by such substituents has been brought to light by a comparative study.
