ChemComm is delighted to announce Professor Véronique Gouverneur as its new Editorial Board Chair.
Véronique Gouverneur, who is Professor of Chemistry at the University of Oxford, leads a dynamic research group and holds a tutorial fellowship in organic chemistry at Merton College Oxford. She has been internationally recognised for her outstanding and original work in fluorine chemistry, and has recently been awarded the Tetrahedron Chair for 2016. She was also the Blaise Pascal Chair from 2012 to 2014, and is currently holding a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award (2013-2018).
Her research aims to develop new approaches to address long-standing problems in the synthesis of fluorinated analogues of natural products, pharmaceutical drugs and molecular [18F] labelled probes for PET imaging.
Véronique takes on the role from Professor Richard R. Schrock, our previous Chair, to whom we remain extremely grateful for his vision and leadership for ChemComm, throughout a period of exceptional development and continued success for the journal. As he now passes the baton, we look forward to working with Véronique towards an even more exciting and dynamic future for ChemComm.
A very warm welcome to Véronique from all of us here at ChemComm!

Synthesis and characterization of a novel N–F reagent derived from the ethano-Tröger’s base: 1JFN coupling constants as a signature for the N–F bond
Raul Pereira, Jamie Wolstenhulme, Graham Sandford, Timothy D. W. Claridge, Véronique Gouverneur and Ján Cvengroš
Chem. Commun., 2016,52, 1606-1609
DOI: 10.1039/C5CC08375C, Communication
Methylation followed by fluorination of the ethano-Tröger’s base affords a novel N–F reagent more reactive than Selectfluor bis(tetrafluoroborate). This study provides 1JFN coupling constants to characterize the N–F group.
