One-pot synthetic approach to produce trifluoroacetamide has been developed using an electrochemical method with the B12 complex as a catalyst under mild conditions, in open air at room temperature. Thirty examples of trifluoroacetamide were synthesized from 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2,2-trifluoroethane (CFC-113a) in moderate to good yields. This user-friendly strategy is compatible with a broad range of trifluoroacetamide syntheses.
