Since the discovery of the beneficial effects of fluorine incorporation into organic molecules the synthesis and application of organofluorine compounds underwent an explosion like development. The major driving force of such developments was the pharmaceutical industry; however, organofluorine compounds are widely applied in many other applications from plastics, to refrigeration.
In this special issue, our goal is to provide an overview of this exciting research field, as broad as possible, highlighting recent developments in the design, synthesis and application of fluorine compounds.
It is our hope that this Special Issue on Fluorine Chemistry will become an attractive forum to scientists who either work on the synthesis of fluorinated compounds, or apply these compounds for different purposes. Thus this issue will be an excellent medium to present synthesis, structural analysis, pharmacological and therapeutic potential and other applications of fluorine compounds. I strongly encourage authors to submit papers for this Special Issue on Fluorine Chemistry, within the scope of Molecules. I hope that the topics covered will reflect the vast array of synthetic and application possibilities and generate potential future developments in this and related fields.

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.
