Organic synthesis is a key important tool to achieve many of the benefits of human kind. The connection between organic synthesis and medicinal chemistry is of principal interest through our research. Based on the importance of fluorine in biologically active compounds, we have been also interested in the development of new methods for the preparation of organofluorine molecules.
