Thallation of anisole with an excess of thallic trifluoroacetate in trifluoroacetic acid at room temperature yields 2,4-bis[bis(trifluoroacetato)thallio]anisole, and thallation with an equimolar amount of thallic trifluoroacetate using a long reaction time gives predominantly o-[bis(trifluoroacetato)thallio] anisole.
