Fluorine News
The crystal packing diagram of [AuCl{Et2P(CF=CF2)}]

Going for Gold ...
Weak gold..gold (aurophilic) interactions were probed in a series of gold fluorophosphine complexes. In many cases other interactions were more important than aurophilicity more...

Inhaler Propellant
The propellant in many inhalers is an inert hydrofluorocarbon compound. The same material used in air-conditioners.

Fluorus domains ...
As quoted in "Fluorous Chemistry" (Current Topics in Chemistry, 308) by systematically varying the fluorinated group in a series of gold fluorophosphine complexes we could probe the generation of fluorous domains in a series of otherwise similar complexes. more...
