Reaction of direct electrophilic perfluoroacylation of different structure alkenes with trifluoroacetic anhydride activated by BF3 · SMe2 complex leads to trifluoromethylalkenylketones with different structure of alkenyl group. Possible composition of the reactive species is considered on the basis of IR and NMR data. Dependence of the reaction course on the substrate structure is discussed.
