We report a large-scale carboxylation of N-Boc-4,4-difluoropiperidine (1) enabled by a continuous flow process. The flow process involved N-Boc-directed α-deprotonation using s-BuLi in THF and subsequent trapping with CO2 gas. Flow chemistry enabled the safe and scalable preparation of 400 g of carboxylic acid 2 over the course of a day to support our medicinal chemistry research program.
