Positron emission tomography (PET) is a molecular imaging technique that captures functional or phenotypic changes associated with pathology. This research field is currently fuelled by the need for conceptually new F-radiolabeling methods to satisfy clinical demand. F-labeled aryl derivatives are highly sought after in the context of both drug and radiotracer development because of their advantageous metabolic profile for in vivo applications. The most challenging targets are aryl precursors… CONTINUE READING
