Fluorination has gained an increasingly important role in drug discovery and development. Here we describe a versatile strategy that combines cytochrome P450–catalyzed oxygenation with deoxofluorination to achieve monoand polyfluorination of nonreactive sites in a variety of organic scaffolds. This procedure was applied for the rapid identification of fluorinated drug derivatives with enhanced membrane permeability.
