The extraordinary potential of fluorine-containing biologically relevant molecules in biology, medicinal chemistry, and medical applications has been recognized by researchers who are not in the traditional fluorine chemistry field, and thus a new wave of fluorine chemistry is expanding its biomedical frontiers. This book contains comprehensive reviews on cutting-edge developments and future prospects of fluorine in bioorganic and medicinal chemistry. It is essential for researchers who want to take advantage of the use of fluorine in biomedical research, from rational drug design, theory and synthesis to the use of fluorine labels as probes in metabolic study, protein engineering, and clinical diagnosis.
