Consider a solution of acetophenone (AKA methyl phenyl ketone) and sodium trifluoroperacetate (deprotonated trifluoroperacetic acid). Draw these two reactants and then show a full arrow-pushing mechanism providing the flow of electrons, showing how the two react with one another and the resulting product.
