Fluorinated Ketoesters

β-Keto esters are useful chemical substrates for a wide range of condensation type chemical transformations. Of particular note are the reactions that produce 6 membered heterocycles which find many uses in the pharmaceutical industries. Over 25 years F2 Chemicals Ltd has pioneered the use of elemental fluorine for the selective fluorination of enolisable β-keto esters producing a range of monofluorinated β-keto esters at full commercial scale.
