Tails and steeds versus heads and beads - The case for fluorous phase methodology in combinatorial and parallel syntheses Academic Article uri icon


  • The development of fluorous phase synthetic chemistry is reviewed from its recent origins in strategies for recoverable catalysts through emerging applications in high-throughput library synthesis. The roles of pony tails , (CH2)m(CF2)n-1 CF 3, as solubility control or phase labelling elements, are described. The synthesis and properties of fluorous aliphatic amines are detailed, and lead references to fluorous protecting groups and chromatographic methods are given.
