When heated in the presence of a catalytic amount of BF3 etherate,α-trifluoromethyl-β-diethylamino-β-fluoroacrylic acid N, N-dimethylamide is reversibly isomerized toα-trifluoromethyl-β-dimethylamino-β-fluoroacrylic acid N, N-diethylamide. The methyl esters ofα-trifluoromethyl-β-diethylammo-β-fluoroacrylic acid andα-trifluoromethyl-β-phenoxy-β-fluoroacrylic acid N,N-dimethylamide are not isomerized under the same conditions.
