Direct Trifluoromethylthiolation Reactions: The “Renaissance” of an Old Concept (Eur. J. Org. Chem. 12/2014)
The cover picture shows the “hot topics” of fluorine chemistry. In particular, the emergence of new fluorinated moieties which, in recent years, have found more and more applications in various fields, from materials to life sciences and medical imaging. Among these emergent groups, CF3S recently experienced a “Renaissance” period with the development of new reagents to enable its introduction into molecules. Details are presented in the Microreview by T. Billard et al. on p. 2415 ff..
