Abstract

Various applications could benefit from new fluorinated molecules that offer chemical handles for quickly functionalizing reactive surfaces and molecules. Herein, we report the synthesis of a library of fluorinated molecules that contain nonafluoro-tert-butyl groups and electrophilic handles, mostly acrylates and acrylamides. Featuring a variety of hydrophobic and hydrophilic linkers, these molecules could find use in polymer chemistry, biomaterials, biomedical imaging, and protein tagging.
