Rovis N-Heterocyclic Carbene (RoNHC) Catalysts

Sigma Aldrich is proud to offer the Rovis chiral N-heterocyclic carbene catalysts (RoNHCs) in partnership with Plura Biosciences.

          

The benefits of RoNHC technology:

  • Rapid synthesis of stereogenic fluorine centers with high ee
  • Metal-free, organocatalytic reactions
  • Simple room temperature procedures

α-Fluoroenals 1 (from 374717), when treated with the hydration (RoNHC-H) or amidation (RoNHC-A) catalyst afford enantioenriched α-fluorocarboxylic acids or enantioenriched α-fluoroamides in excellent yield and selectivity.

Available Building Blocks

         

Or, purchase your fluorine stereocenters pre-installed with our commercially available α-fluorocarboxylic acids.
