The aim of this symposium is to highlight recent advances in synthetic methodology for the controlled introduction of fluorine into organic molecules, and to showcase its application to alter the structural and physical properties of molecules. Academics from the UK and Europe will present their latest research on the synthesis and application of fluorinated organic molecules, and speakers from the pharmaceutical industry will provide insights into the application of organofluorine compounds to challenging real-world problems.
