The recently reported synthesis of perfluoroalkyl azides and triazoles1 opened the door to study properties and reactivity of these compounds. In this project, the rich chemistry of (per)fluoroalkyl azides and triazoles2,3 will be investigated and new synthetic approaches to underdeveloped N-fluoroalkyl-containing compounds such as azides, azoles, azirines, ketenimines will be studied. This class of compounds is expected to find utilization in drug discovery and in the development of new materials.
