New Reagents for Octafluorocyclobutane Transfer that Eliminate the Use of Hazardous Tetrafluoroethylene
Lehigh University, PA, United States
Safe and efficient reagents to transfer sequential difluoromethylene groups to organic, inorganic, and organometallic substances.
Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 5
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: This is an improvement over existing technologies because other dinucleophiles like di-Grignard and di-copper reagents have extremely short lifetimes at low temperatures. Our di-zinc reagents are solid and solution stable at room temperature for days.
