Ethyl acrylate and acrylonitrile fail to undergo efficient Baylis- Hillman reaction with fluoral, but provide good yields of products with pentafluorobenzaldehyde. Alternately, unsubstituted and β-substituted [α- (ethoxycarbonyl)vinyl]aluminum react with perfluoroalkyl and -aryl aldehydes and ketones to provide the α-hydroxyalkenylated fluoro-organic compounds in good to excellent yields.
