F-TEDA-BF4 is a reagent in chemistry used as a fluorine donor. It is a DABCO derivative with full name 1-Chloromethyl-4-fluoro-1,4-diazoniabicyclo[2.2.2]octane bis(tetrafluoroborate) and discovered in 1992 [1]

The compound is synthesized by reaction of diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane (DABCO) with dichloromethane, followed by ion exchange with sodium tetrafluoroborate (replacing the chlorine counterion for the tetrafluoroborate one) and finally reaction with elemental fluorine and sodium tetrafluoroborane. In contrast to hazardous fluorine this reagent is safe to use. It is listed as a superelectrophile.
