Founded by renowned fluorination expert Oxford Professor Véronique Gouverneur and Dr Gabriele Pupo with their combined decades of experience in fluorination chemistry, organic synthesis and catalysis.
Oxford, United Kingdom, 05 July 2023 – FluoRok, a deep-tech company developing revolutionary processes to access fluorochemicals in an efficient, safe, clean and sustainable way, today announces £3m of seed funding from Oxford Science Enterprises (OSE).
FluoRok is pioneering a new method for the direct synthesis of high value fluorochemicals from fluorspar (CaF2). Its proprietary technology directly employs fluorinated waste material or naturally occurring fluorite mineral as a source, to access high-value compounds that are key to the world’s energy transition, our global food supply, and our health.
