About Fluorous Technologies

Originally founded by fluorous chemistry pioneer Prof. Dennis Curran (University of Pittsburgh), certain assets and IP of Fluorous Technologies Incorporated were acquired in 2013 by Boron Specialties, LLC.  Also located in Pittsburgh, Boron Specialties intended to continue making the unique fluorous chemistry available to the research community.

While applications of fluorous chemistry in synthesis are largely limited to niche applications, we continue to support customers in new application areas like development of selective sampling, analysis, and remediation methods for PFAS / PFOA / PFOS contamination in the environment.
