Fluoroiodomethane is a mixed halomethane, more exactly fluoroiodocarbon (FIC).

Synthesis[edit]

Fluoroiodomethane can be prepared from iodoacetic acid.[1]

Applications[edit]

Its isotopomer [18F]fluoroiodomethane (PubChem 451313) is a synthetic precursor for fluoromethylation of radiopharmaceuticals.

Also proposal of its use as a safe high-performance foam blowing agent exists.[2]
