XtalFluor Reagents

New fluorinating reagents


With the goal of providing a safer and crystalline fluorinating reagent, OmegaChem discovered in 2010 a new class of reagents with impressive  behavior. In the past, organic chemists needed products such as DAST, Deoxo-Fluor® and more recently Fluolead to perform fluorination, but XtalFluor® reagents now come with a long list of advantages over all of them.


All around advantages over DAST and Deoxo-Fluor!

  • Easily handled crystalline solids
  • Enhanced thermal stability
  • No generation of free HF; compatible with standard glass equipment
  • Fewer elimination side-products
  • Less stringent shipping restrictions
  • Lower costs
