Abstract

Sulfur(VI) fluorides are an emerging class of compounds that have remarkable stability to hydrolysis, redox chemistry, and thermal decomposition compared to other S(VI) halides. As a result, there is a high interest in these compounds as synthetic tools. This chapter will highlight the synthesis of S(VI) fluorides including sulfonyl fluorides (RSO2F), fluorosulfates (ROSO2OR), sulfamoyl fluorides (R2NSO2NR2), and iminosulfur oxydifluorides (RNSOF2). The general reactivity of these compounds will be discussed as well as their applications in small‐molecule synthesis, metal‐catalyzed cross‐coupling chemistry, materials, and chemical biology.
