Event description

Description

Building on the great success of the past International Symposia on Fluorous Technologies (iSoFT) since 2005, the Seventh iSoFT will be held in Boston Massachusetts from August 9-11, 2017. The evolution of fluorous chemistry probably started with the isolation of the first few drops of a liquid perfluoroalkane about seventy years ago. The high density and many other unique properties were immediately apparent upon isolation. The term “fluorous” was introduced in 1994, as the analogue to the term aqueous, to emphasize the fact that a chemical transformation is primarily controlled by a reagent or a catalyst designed to dissolve preferentially in the fluorous phase. The fluorous phase was originally defined as a perfluoroalkane, perfluorodialkyl ether, or perfluorotrialkylamine rich liquid phase creating a liquid biphasic system, providing the opportunity to do reactions in one phase at higher temperatures and separation at lower temperatures. It was later expanded to include lighter and heavier fluorous groups as well as solid–liquid phases. Several fluorous technologies have been developed and are used routinely.
