Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The Staudinger ligation of phosphine-substituted thioesters with 18F-fluoroethylazide has been successfully applied to access 18F-labelled molecules in radiochemical yields superior to 95%; the first fluorous variant of a Staudinger radio-ligation has been validated.
