A continuous flow process for the synthesis of trifluoromethylthioethers is reported. The palladium-catalyzed C-H trifluoromethylthiolation of amides derived from the 8-aminoquinoline using N-[(trifluoromethyl)thio]phthalimide produced the desired products in moderate to good yields with a residence time of 20 min. In comparison with the batch process, the reaction time was decreased by a factor of 100 to 200, demonstrating the positive effect of continuous flow processes for this type of reaction.
