Chemistry in fluorous media: a user's guide to practical considerations in the application of fluorous catalysts and reagents Conference Paper uri icon


  • Fluorous solvents commonly exhibit temperature-dependent miscibilities with organic solvents. Thus, catalysts and reagents that have high affinities for fluorous solvents can be used in protocols that combine the advantages of one-phase chemistry (higher temperature) and biphase product separation (lower temperature). This review provides a 'how to' guide with respect to solvent sources, and solubility and polarity characteristics. All currently available partition coefficients for fluorous catalysts and reagents, as well as various adducts and products, are tabulated. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science S.A.
