The article discusses the popularity of flourine chemistry. Interest in fluorine chemistry has never been greater, according to David O'Hagan, professor of organic chemistry and an expert in fluorine chemistry at the University of Saint Andrews in Scotland. Fluorine advances are making an impression on the market with an array of building blocks and reagents fuelling sales.
