Fluorinated Organics Catalog Offers Over 3,300 Products
Alfa Aesar, a Johnson Matthey Company, has published a new Fluorinated Organics catalog which highlights Alfa Aesar's offering of over 3,300 fluorinated organic compounds.
The 284-page catalog lists more than 1,200 new products, including new boronic acids manufactured by Alfa Aesar Synmax in Yantai, China. Alfa Aesar is also the exclusive distributor of research quantities of over 350 novel fluoroaromatics from JRD Fluorochemicals, which has been active in the development of these compounds for some 30 years.
Approximately 20% of all pharmaceuticals and at least 30% of agrochemicals on the market contain fluorine. Amongst recently introduced products, the proportions are even higher. Although a range of more readily handled and selective fluorinating agents is available, in many cases the target molecule may be more conveniently attained in fewer steps by utilizing fluorinated building blocks available from commercial sources, among which Alfa Aesar offers one of the largest ranges.
