    Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

Fluorinated hypervalent iodine compounds such as Togni reagents have become widely used electrophilic trifluoromethylating reagents.1 They display a unique reactivity profile and functional group compatibility. Recently, in our group we have prepared substituted tetrafluoroethylene-containing reagents and have shown their application in reactions with various nucleophiles.2,3 In this project, we aim to synthetize fluoroalkylated hypervalent iodine reagents bearing a functional group and investigate their utilization in tagging biomolecules such as peptides in electrophilic or radical fashion. New bioconjugation approaches are of great interest to biochemists.
