Fluorous Chemistry

Proteomics and Metabolomics


The seminal publication in this field was published by Peters et al from the Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation in 2005 and describes the use of fluorous bioreagents in proteomics. Within that publication, they described fluorous reagents for Cys tagging, fluorous thiols for phosphoproteome analysis, and fluorous NHS esters for amine tagging. Since that publication, the line of bioreagents has been extended to include products for carbonyl tagging and click chemistry.
