CRL-40,941 (also referred to as fladrafinil or fluorafinil)[1] is a wakefulness-promoting agent closely related to adrafinil and modafinil. It is the bis(p-fluoro) ring-substituted derivative of adrafinil and has similar effects in animal tests and human trials. The fluorine substitution increases the potency to around twice that of adrafinil. CRL-40,941 was found to produce antiaggressive effects in animals, which adrafinil does not produce.[2]

As of late 2013, CRL-40,941 has been seen on the recreational drug markets.[3]
