Fluorous Linker

If you read the previous post where we looked at a recent review on fluorous linkers, one of the nits picked was that the review really didn’t look at linkers as is in the title, since the fluorous domains on … Continue reading

Are fluorinated surfactants less cytotoxic?

As per a recent communication (New J. Chem., 2008, 32, 2169), this indeed appears to be the case, at least for single-tailed glucopyranoside surfactants compared to their hydrocarbon counterparts.  Non-ionic surfactants of this type are of interest in biomedical applications, … Continue reading

Fluorous Porous Polymer Monoliths

Nearly all reported fluorous solid phase extractions (FSPE) reported to date have been conducted using fluorous modified silica gel as the stationary phase with nearly all of these occurring in some sort of cartridge or packed column type format.  There … Continue reading

Adsorption of Proteins on a Fluorous Surface

Last year Prof J. Hugh Horton and co-workers at Queen’s University in Ontario published a paper describing the fluorous modification of poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) and the use of the material in the adsorption of a fluorous tagged peptide.  They have now … Continue reading
