Room temperature syntheses of substituted beta-fluorofurans on the cover of OBC issue 12

On the cover this week is work by Roman Dembinski et al. at Oakland University and Eastern Illinois University, highlighting facile synthetic methods for the preparation of 3-fluorofurans, 3-bromo-4-fluorofurans, and 3-fluoro-4-iodofurans in good yields and at room temperature.

Read all about the synthetic sequences employed: this article will be FREE to access for a period of 6 weeks.
