New Paper in Beilstein J. Org. Chem.
Our latest paper exploring benzothiazolium salts as reagents in organofluorine chemistry is now out in the Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry as part of the thematic issue "Organo-fluorine Chemistry V" (Guest Editor: D. O'Hagan). In this work, a series of BT-SRF reagents featuring long-chain perfluoroalkylthio groups were prepared and their reactivity was explored in deoxygenative substitution reactions. This led to the development of an unprecedented nucleophilic route to -SC2F5 and -SC3F7-substituted compounds directly from aliphatic alcohols.
Congratulations to the joint first authors Armin and Nils, as well as to contributors Ben and Stefan!
