Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Title: Electroreductive Metal Complexes Assisted Fluoroalkylation
Authors: Budnikova Y.H., Mikhaylov D.Y., Gryaznova T.V., Khrizanphorov M.N., Sinyashin O.G. and A.E. Arbuzov

Abstract: Some achievements in the very challenging area of synthesis of fluorinated molecules will be considered on the basis of methods of electrochemistry, namely, the development of new electrochemical methods to join perfluoroalkyl synthons to substrates of various nature, such as olefins, white phosphorus and organic halides with the assistance of transition metal complexes in low oxidation states (+1, 0). New electrocatalytic common approach of carbon-perfluoroalkyl or phosphorus-perfluoroalkyl bonds formation from oxidative addition and reductive elimination reaction stages is proposed. The mechanisms and intermediates of the processes, the influence of metal nature, synthesis conditions on yield of product and reaction selectivity will be discussed.
