Addition of fluorine to an olefinic double bond has been achieved by interaction of lead dioxide with hydrogen fluoride in the olefin which is to receive the fluorine. The reaction makes nascent lead tetrafluoride, which decomposes into lead difluoride and a mole of fluorine which is accepted by the olefinic double bond.
