Specifications | MSDS | Literature and Reviews

4-Fluorobenzenesulfonamide (CAS number 402-46-0) is a para-substituted fluorinated benzenesulfonamide. 4-Fluorobenzenesulfonamide consists of a sulfonyl group terminated by an amine, enabling functionalisation through nucleophilic substitution. For instance, 4-fluorobenzenesulfonamide reacts with benzaldehyde to form (E)-N-(4-fluorobenzylidene)-4-fluorobenzenesulfonamide as an antimicrobial. A potential anti-tumour drug bis(dithiocabinmato)-platinum(II) can be synthesised from 4-fluorobenzenesulfonamide with carbon disulfide and platinum complex. PI3K/mTOR dual inhibitors are designed and synthesised from 4-fluorobenzenesulfonamide, showing half maximal inhibitory concentration up to 2.88 ± 0.58 µM.

Other than pharmaceutical applications, 4-fluorobenzenesulfonamide has been exploited to functionalise rhodamines for systematic tuning of the equilibrium of spirocyclisation for high resolution bioimaging.
