About this book

This volume reviews the recent advances in formation of C-F bonds and X-F bonds (X = heteroatom) to produce useful fluorinated molecules for pharmaceuticals, materials and more. Reactions and methods associated with fluorination, including monofluorination, difluorination, trifluorination and other polyfluorination that have emerged within the past few years are systematically discussed. With contributions from front-line researchers in this field from both academia and industry, this book provides a valuable resource for scholars, graduate students as well as professionals.
