Late Stage Fluorination with Metal Alkali Fluoride
With a growing human population and limited Earth’s natural resources, chemists are directing their efforts towards circular processes that make use of benign chemical reagents, renewable feedstocks, catalysis using abundant metals, enzymes, photons or electrons, with waste being minimised and recycled. These important standards apply to the production of fluorine-containing chemicals that are used daily as high-performance materials, agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals. This lecture focuses on our efforts to access high value fluorinated molecules from metal alkali fluorides, the most inexpensive and easy to handle fluorine source.
