A must-have resource for all the researchers working in the organofluorine and related fields

This timely two-volume set uniquely focuses on emerging fluorinated motifs beyond R-CF3 and R-F, like R-CF2H, R-OCF3, R-SCF3 and R-SF5. It also offers descriptions of the properties, synthesis, and applications of these emerging fluorinated motifs in order to help readers design new chemical entities, while providing new interest for researchers in organofluorine chemistry and new tools for those in other areas.

Emerging Fluorinated Motifs: Synthesis, Properties and Applications begins with a description of carbon-linked fluorine-containing groups that include monofluoromethyl and difluoromethyl groups. It then details combinations of heteroatoms, Oxygen, Sulfur, Selenium, Nitrogen, and Phosphorus with fluorine-containing groups, outlining subsections of the most popular current motifs. Fluoroalkyl ethers, thioethers, and the recent blossoming of the SF5 unit is covered. Other chapters look at: selenium-linked fluorine-containing motifs; construction of N-CF2H, N-CF3, N-CH2CF3 motifs; and the synthesis and applications of P-Rf-containing molecules.

-Focuses on the synthesis, properties, and applications of emerging fluorinated motifs
-Covers carbon-linked fluorine-containing motifs, oxygen-linked fluorine-containing motifs, sulfur-linked fluorine-containing motifs, and more
-Appeals to academic and industrial researchers working in organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, food chemistry, and materials science
-Edited by world-renowned experts in organofluorine chemistry

Emerging Fluorinated Motifs is intended for academic research institutes, university libraries, researchers, graduate students, postdoctors, and researchers in the chemical industry.
