Fluorous Host-Guest Chemistry and Transport

The use of a fluorous phase as a liquid membrane has been applied in several multiphasic reactions, primarily fluorous triphasic and phase-vanishing reactions.  In both cases, the fluorous liquid phase is used as a barrier separating two other phases, one … Continue reading

Teflon Tape Membrane

Phase vanishing and triphasic reactions are ones that employ a fluorous liquid membrane, generally a perfluorocarbon such as FC-72, which separate two other liquid phases.  Usually one phase contains a reactant while the other a substrate.  The reactant can then … Continue reading

Catalyst Recovery in CBS Reductions

On the heels of the last post which described some organocatalyst work from the Wang group comes a newly available report in Chemical Communications from Tibor Soós and co-workers describing a new CBS pre-catalyst, A.  As seen below, the catalyst … Continue reading

Catalytic Triphasic Reaction

Back in the early part of this decade, University of Pittsburgh professor and FTI founder, Dennis Curran, published the first example of a fluorous triphasic reaction.  The triphasic reaction as originally published was conducted in a U-tube with a fluorous … Continue reading

More Phase Vanishing

Earlier this summer, we described some of the work of Prof. Ryu in the use of a fluorous liquid in phase vanishing reactions. To jog your memory, phase vanishing reactions are one where a fluorous phase is used as a … Continue reading
