Organofluorine chemistry VI

It is a pleasure to launch the 6th Thematic Issue on organofluorine chemistry in the Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry. The special characteristics of fluorine, which stem from its high electronegativity and its ability to form stable bonds to carbon, render it particularly useful in optimising the properties of molecules in all areas where organic chemicals are applied. Thus, organofluorine compounds emerge prominently in the pharmaceutical and agrochemicals industries, and they have had a long history in the development of polymers and more recently in soft materials, such as those associated with modern display technologies. Some structural classes, such as perfluorochemicals, are presenting challenges due to their environmental impact. Therefore, it is now necessary that such considerations are incorporated into innovations in the development of functional molecules containing fluorine. New synthetic methods for selective fluorinations and understanding the properties and life cycle of fluorine-containing compounds provide the stimulus now for innovation in organofluorine chemistry.  It is in that context that BJOC continues its commitment to this subdiscipline of organic chemistry by opening the 6th Thematic Issue on organofluorine chemistry. Contributions from academic and industrial laboratories across all areas of the organofluorine enterprise are welcome.
