Methods for preparation of organofluorine compounds are reviewed from the view point of the reagent system consisting of fluoride ion and an oxidant. Reagents like N-halo imides are often used as the oxidant, which may be replaced by electrochemical oxidation. These methods provide us with various types of fluorinated compounds efficiently and selectively under mild conditions.
