The “Fluorine bubble”

Filed under: Chemistry — Tags: , , — sankirnam @ 3:05 pm

These are 4 reviews on trifluoromethylation methods that have appeared in the literature in the last 2-3 weeks:

1. http://pubs.acs.org/doi/pdf/10.1021/cr400473a

2. http://pubs.acs.org/doi/pdf/10.1021/ar4003202

3. http://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlepdf/2014/cs/c4cs00025k?page=search

4. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jfluchem.2014.01.016

This is increasing evidence of the “fluorine bubble” that is appearing lately in the organic chemistry literature. Research groups from other areas of chemistry are now jumping on the fluorine bandwagon. It’s good that fluorine chemistry is getting the added attention, but the contributions of the long-time researchers and those who helped build the field should not be forgotten.
