Fluorine-substituted heterocycles continue to play an important role in pharmaceutical research and in the development of new materials. In this context, generally applicable and direct fluoroalkylation on carbon atom of the heterocyclic ring or nitrogen atom of the nitrogen heterocycle remains an unresolved challenge. In this project, we will focus on radical and ionic introduction of fluoroalkyl groups (such as the trifluoromethyl or difluoromethyl groups) to heterocyclic structures as well as transformations of primary products into new heterocyclic and acyclic fluorinated compounds.
