The addition of cesium fluoroxysulfate (1) to a variety of alkenes (1-hexene, styrene, E-stilbene, cyclohexene, diene 14) proceeds under mild conditions giving the previously unknown vicinal fluoro alkyl sulfates. The structures of these products were rigorously established by thorough 1H, 19F and 13C NMR data analyses. The studied reactions exhibit low regio- and stereo- selectivities with a preference for anti-Markovnikov- and syn-addition. The predominance of cis-product formation is consistent with a concerted mechanism for the addition.
