Petr Beier Group


Ing. Petr Beier, Ph.D.

Field of study:

Organic chemistry


In this project, the family of organic fluorinated azides developed by us recently1-3 will be extended by new reagents featuring fluorinated organic azides with fluorosulfonyl groups in one molecule. These new one- or two-carbon reagents will be used for efficient consecutive azide-alkyne cycloaddition and sulfur fluoride exchange (SuFEx) processes to link alkynes with nucleophiles in a chemoselective and modular way under biocompatible conditions. Applications of these reagents in synthesis, and in bioconjugation will be developed.
