The paper of Marie has been selected by the Editor of Angewandte Chemie for illustration as an Inside Cover. Gold(I) catalysts teamed with Selectfluor produce trifluorinated dihydropyranones from difluoroynones under mild conditions. The process proceeds via a vinylgold intermediate that undergoes fluorination and competing protonation. This gold chemistry is encouraging for the synthesis of architecturally complex fluorinated targets combining fluorinated precursors with electrophilic fluorinating reagents.

The chemistry solves the problem of erosion of ee occasionally observed upon nucleophilic fluorination of propargylic alcohols using DAST. The ee were determined using 13C NMR spectroscopy in chiral liquid crystalline solvents (PBLG) with chloroform.

The Siemens Oxford Molecular Imaging Laboratory (SOMIL), located in the Inorganic Chemistry Building, was formally opened by Michael Reitermann, President of Siemens Molecular Imaging, on January 24th 2007.

This laboratory was established as part of a £2 million research project funded by Siemens, DTI and EPSRC and involves Professor Jon Dilworth and Dr Veronique Gouverneur (Chemistry) and Professor M. Brady (Engineering). The laboratory has state of the art equipment for the handling of positron-emitting radioisotopes such as 64Cu, 18F and 68Ga used for PET imaging and also for gamma-emitting isotopes such as 99mTc widely used for SPECT images.

The facilities will permit the radiolabelling of biologically active molecules for imaging and therapeutic applications and collaborations with a number of Departments at the Medical Sciences Division are in place to carry out biological testing.

The opening of the new cancer hospital at the Churchill site with its human PET imaging facility and cyclotron will presage a major expansion in PET imaging in Oxford and the SOMIL facility will provide important radiochemistry support in terms of the development of new imaging agents.
