Abstract The incorporation of fluorinated moieties into organic structures is a particularly powerful approach for generating compounds with useful biological applications in industry, pharmacology, and agriculture. Herein, we report that the recently developed reagent - CF2HCHN2 - selectively esterifies carboxyl groups in organic molecules possessing other polar functional groups. The reaction is remarkably simple, proceeding at room temperature in chloroform without addition of a catalyst. The procedure allows "last-step" incorporation of a fluorinated ester moiety into organic structures, including bioorganic molecules such as peptides and proteins. The fluorinated ester can subsequently function as a 19F-probe in biomolecules, thereby enabling molecular size determination by diffusion 19F-NMR experiments.
