Indeed, because of the great reactivity of carbanions toward elimination of a fluoride ion, they may have short lifetimes: a-fluorinated carbanions easily undergo a-elimination processes to carbenes, while b-fluorinated carbanions undergo belimination reactions. 41 Consequently, the corresponding organometallic species (Li, Mg) cannot be used in organic synthesis. When the carbon-metal bond is close to a covalent bond, the anionic species is more stable, but has almost no reactivity toward electrophiles.
