Application

4-Fluorobenzotrifluoride was used in the synthesis of:
  • 2,2′-bis(trifluoromethylphenoxy)biphenyl via nucleophilic aromatic substitution reaction with 2,2′-biphenol
  • (S)-fluoxetine, potent inhibitor of neuronal serotonin-uptake
  • 1-aryloxy-2-substituted aminomethyltetrahydronaphthalene derivatives

Several 1-aryloxy-2-substituted aminomethyltetrahydronaphthalenes (7-21) as conformationally rigid analogues of fluoxetine were synthesized and evaluated for their anorexigenic and antidepressant activities. For SAR studies the related acyclic analogues (22-27) were also prepared. Out of the 21 synthesized compounds, 10 compounds (9

Fluoxetine is a potent and selective inhibitor of the neuronal serotonin-uptake carrier and is a clinically effective antidepressant. Although fluoxetine is used therapeutically as the racemate, there appears to be a small but demonstrable stereospecificity associated with its interactions with

Novel bifunctional acyl-acceptant biphenyls bearing trifluoromethylated aroyloxy groups were successfully synthesized in high yields via TfOH-mediated electrophilic aromatic aroylation of fluorobenzene with CF(3)-bearing aroyl chlorides followed by nucleophilic aromatic substitution with 2,2'-biphenol. Similarly, 2,2'-bis(trifluoromethylphenoxy)biphenyl was synthesized via nucleophilic aromatic substitution
