Alfa Chemistry Extended Production of Fluorinated Building Blocks

On April 2, 2018, Alfa Chemistry, a leading chemical supplier lauched to extend its production of fluorinated building blocks to meet the increasing needs of customers all over the world.

Fluorinated building blocks, refer to compounds containing negatively charged fluorine. Fluorine is the most abundant halogen in the nature and it possesses unique physical, chemical and physiological properties due to the electronegativity and polarizability of fluorine atoms. Fluorinated building blocks are widely used in the fields of material chemistry, medicinal chemistry, organic chemistry and biochemistry. Alfa Chemistry extend its production of varieties of fluorinated building blocks including heterocyclic fluorinated building blocks and organic fluorinated compounds.

Heterocyclic fluorinated building blocks are commonly used in the fields of medical chemistry and agriculture. Elective fluorine substitution can be used to tweak the physic-chemical properties of potential drugs since heterocyclic rings are particularly susceptible to fluorine. It has been estimated that up to 20% of new drugs contain fluorine. 5-flourouricil and fluoroquionlones are well known examples of successful applications of fluorinated heterocyclic rings. The growing impact of fluorine in drug design and the prevalence of heterocyclic rings in medicinal chemistry readily explain the important role of fluorinated heterocycles in drug design, research and development. In the area of agricultural chemistry, the relative share of new fluorinated products is even higher. The notable examples of agrochemicals include the acaricide Fluazuron; fungicides Thifluzamide, Flutriafol and Fluquinconazole; herbicides Flufenacet and Prosulfuron; insecticides Fipronil and Hydramethylnon.

The applications of organic fluorinated compounds span virtually the whole range of the chemistry and life science. It is quite clear that wherever organic chemistry, biochemistry and chemical industry progress, organic fluorinated compounds will play an important role. The carbon-fluorine chemical bond is the strongest bond in organic chemistry, which is one of the most important factors contributing to the great stability of the organic fluorinated compounds. In addition to its high stability, the small size of fluorine allows the organic fluorinated compounds to be applied in medicine. It is estimated that 20% of the drugs and 30-40% of the agrichemicals are organic fluorinated compounds. Examples include 5-fluorouracil, fluoxetine, paroxetine, ciprofloxacin, mefloquine and fluconazole.

“The fluorinated building blocks have a wide range of applications, such as material chemistry, medicinal chemistry, organic chemistry and biochemistry, that’s why the demands of these kinds of compounds are increasing dramatically. So we decide to extend our production of fluorinated building blocks to meet the needs of our customers,” said Dr. Brenda Randy, the marketing manager of Alfa Chemistry.
