Building block approach

Rather than creating carbon-fluorine bonds directly, it is often easier and less hazardous to synthesise molecules from pre-fluorinated fragments. Cheshire Organics list an array of fluorinated molecules for the synthetic chemist to use in imaginative ways to furnish new, useful compounds for research and manufacture. Our custom synthesis team can also provide bespoke fluorinated fragments for clients should the desired compound not be listed.

Some examples of the diversity that can be created from these fluorinated building blocks are illustrated below.
