Abstract

Continuous flow methodology for the synthesis of perfluoroaryl difluoroamine derivatives by reaction of fluorine gas with an appropriate perfluoroaniline substrate is described, further demonstrating the efficient use of flow regimes for reactions involving highly reactive and toxic reagents.
