We report the synthesis of several new α-trifluoromethylated nitrogen heterocycles, among which azanorbornene and azetidine derivs., by aza Diels-Alder or iodine-mediated cyclizations. These building blocks were used as starting materials for the formation of fluorinated polymers by ROMP or for ligand design through substitution and click reactions. [on SciFinder(R)]
