Organo Fluorination Technologies


Air Products is offering for license technology that is most appropriately applied to specialty compound syntheses where the existing traditional fluorination technologies, such as halogen exchange or Balz-Schiemann chemistry, are either not desirable or not applicable. The market opportunities for the Technology are generally low-volume, high-value, niche-applications.


  • Safe Fluorine handling methodologies
  • Air Products proprietary materials possess superior process selectivity which permit the attainment of purity levels not achievable by other means.
  • Safe and stable production of 6-position fluoro-steroids
  • Ability to convert Ketone Structures to their di-fluoro equivalents
  • Ability to convert carboxylic acids (COOH) to their tri-fluoro (CF3) equivalents
  • Alternative to fluorine in strong acid technology
