[18F]-labeled drugs and radioligands are most frequently used in positron-emission tomography (PET) radiopharmaceuticals for both clinical and preclinical research. Various methods for the introduction of [18F]fluorine into complex molecules through fluorination reactions have been reported. Herein, recent advances in [18F]-fluorination utilizing aryliodonium(III) compounds are highlighted.

Keywords: [18F]fluorine, aryliodonium compound, fluoroarene, late-stage fluorination, PET imaging, radiosynthesis.
