18-19 october 2018

While carbohydrate and fluorine chemistries are two well-established communities, through French Fluorine Network (GIS Fluor) and Groupe Français des Glycosciences (GFG), and look like rather separated domains of organic chemistry, merging these two distinct fields has led to significant advances in both domains.

The aim of this two-day symposium is to gather international experts in the field to present and discuss recent progress related to the input of fluorine chemistry to the glycochemistry field at the fundamental level.
