This versatile fluorinating agent is supplied by Apollo Scientific to customers in the UK and across the Globe.
1-Chloromethyl-4-fluoro-1,4-diazoniabicyclo[2.2.2]octane bis(tetrafluoroborate) is used as a reagent for electrophilic fluorination and also acts as a selective oxidizing agent. It is an effective and versatile source of electrophilic fluorine and also used in the synthesis of organofluorine.
Selectfluor is used for greener fluorination of acetoacetamides in PEG-400. It is also a reagent that effects oxidative ring opening of 2,5-diarylfurans to cis-1,4-enediones, for fluorination of silyl ketene acetals leading to the formation of α-fluoro-α-arylcarboxylic acids.
