Fluorous Chemistry

Fluorous chemistry involves the use of perfluorinated compounds or perfluorinated substituents to facilitate recovery of a catalyst or reaction product. Perfluorinated groups impart unique physical properties including high solubility in perfluorinated solvents.This property can be useful in organic synthesis and separation methods such as solid phase extraction.Fluorous techniques are applicable to both green chemical process development and chemical discovery research. Fluorous chemistry improves productivity through efficient purification.
