In this study, we report on the radical [18F]fluoroarylation of different olefins using 4-[18F]fluorobenzenediazonium ions to provide a new route to radiopharmaceuticals containing a deactivated, 4-[18F]fluoro substituted phenyl group. This new methodology was shown to be well suited for the synthesis of 18F-labelled stilbenes. Stilbene 7 is now accessible within 80 min in 30-45% overall radiochemical yield starting from [18F]fluoride.
