Efficient Preparation of Fluorine Compounds by H. W Roesky( )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
BiThe definitive guide to creating fluorine-based compounds'and the materials of tomorrow/i/b/ Discovered as an element by the French chemist Henri Moissan in 1886, through electrolysis of potassium fluoride in anhydrous hydrogen fluoride'"le fluor," or fluorine, began its chemical history as a substance both elusive and dangerous. With a slight pale yellow hue, fluorine is at room temperature a poisonous diatomic gas. Resembling a spirit from a chemical netherworld, fluorine is highly reactive, difficult to handle, yet very versatile as a reagent'with the power to form compounds with almost any other element./ Comprising 20% of pharmaceutical products and 30% of agrochemical compounds, as well as playing a key role in electric cars, electronic devices, and space technology, compounds containing fluorine have grown in importance across the globe. Learning how to safely handle fluorine in the preparation of innovative new materials'with valuable new properties'is of critical importance to chemists today. Bringing together the research and methods of leading scientists in the fluorine field, iEfficient Preparations of Fluorine Compounds/i is the definitive manual to creating, and understanding the reaction mechanisms integral to a wide variety of fluorine compounds. With sixty-eight contributed chapters, the book's extensive coverage includes:/ ulliPreparation of Elemental Fluorine/liliSynthesis Methods for Exotic Inorganic Fluorides with Varied Applications/liliIntroduction of Fluorine into Compounds via Electrophilic and Nucleophilic Reactions/liliDirect Fluorination of Organic Compounds with Elemental Fluorine/liliEfficient Preparations of Bioorganic Fluorine Compounds/liliAsymmetric Fluorocyclization Reactions/liliPreparations of Rare Earth Fluorosulfides and Oxyfluorosulfides/li/ul The book offers methods and results that can be reproduced by students involved in advanced studies, as well as practicing chemists, pharmaceutical scientists, biologists, and environmental researchers. The only chemical resource of its kind, iEfficient Preparations of Fluorine Compounds/i'from its first experiment to its last'is a unique window into the centuries old science of fluorine and the limitless universe of fluorine-based compounds

Applied click chemistry from dyeing cotton to drug discovery by K. Barry Sharpless( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Click chemistry is a modular approach that utilizes only the most practical and reliable chemical transformations. Its applications are increasingly found in all aspects of drug discovery, ranging from lead finding through combinatorial chemistry and target-templated in situ chemistry, to proteomics and DNA research utilizing bioconjugation reactions. The Huisgen 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition is a particularly powerful linking reaction, due to its high degree of dependability, complete specificity, and the bio-compatibility of the reactants. The triazole products are more than just passive linkers; they readily associate with biological targets through hydrogen bonding and dipole interactions. K. Barry Sharpless , 2001 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, The Scripps Research Institute." -- NIST Technicalendar announcement
