Fluorine Chemistry Continues Apace
Fluorine chemists have been on a roll lately, generating a torrent of research papers reporting new tricks for incorporating fluorine into organic molecules. The field’s abundance of riches has come about in response to a call by pharmaceutical and agrochemical companies to generate new leads for drugs and pesticides.
The interest in fluorine stems from the ability of the small, highly electronegative element to increase the metabolic stability of molecules. It also improves their ability . . .
