Fluorinated monosaccharides

We are excited to present our new range of fluorinated monosaccharides. BG149The introduction of a fluorine atom into a molecule is known to impart unique properties due to its highly electronegative nature and small size.

Fluorine introduction can lead to modification of the reactivity of functional groups, alter conformational stability and in pharmaceuticals, enhance metabolic stability. The success which can been seen through incorporation of fluorine atoms into drugs is illustrated by the fact that over 30% of the leading blockbuster drugs contain at least one fluorine atom.
