The reaction of potassium fluoride with amyl iodide in presence of dimethylformamide at low temperature gave a fluorination product together with decane. Polyhalogenated acid such as ${\alpha}$, ${\beta}$,-dichloro-${\beta}$-phenyl-propionic acid gave ${\alpha}$-chlorostyrene, fluorinated styrene, and fluorinated acid. The same reaction with the ethyl ester did not give the fluorination product and gave a mixture of various dimerized product. Dibromostyrene gave bromostyrene together with fluorination product. Iodo acid such as m-iodo acid gave the salt and a trace quantity of dimerized product. Iodides such as m-iodotoluene and 1-amino-4-iodo-2-methyl benzene did not show any appreciable reactivity towards potassim fluoride. The reaction condition was described, and fluorination, ${\alpa}$-dehydrofluorination, decarboxylation, and dimerization were discussed.
