Isotope-coded Fluorous PALs

Prof. Qisheng Zhang at UNC-Chapel Hill has published several papers about the synthesis and use of fluorous tagged photoaffinity labels (PALs) and has just published another report in Chemical Communications.  The general strategy is to attach a photosensitive reactive group … Continue reading

Using Fluorous Tags to Mass Differentiate Stereospecific Reactions

Trent Northen and co-workers have been using fluorous immobilization in conjunction with nanostructure initiated mass spec (NIMS) in a number of different applications.  Dr. Northen was one of the inventors of NIMS while working in Gary Siuzdak’s labs at The … Continue reading
