Case Study: Synthesis of Functionalized Iodoarenes by Iododecarboxylation of Aromatic Carboxylic Acids
Case Study: Synthesis of Functionalized Iodoarenes by Iododecarboxylation of"Our research group is currently involved in the synthesis of new hypervalent iodine reagents and their applications in organic synthesis. These reagents have received particular attention due to their oxidation properties, mild reaction conditions, and environmentally friendly nature. Generally, hypervalent iodine reagents exist in the form of iodine(III) and iodine(V) reagents. In our on-going research project, we are aiming to synthesize novel iodine(III) reagents 2 by the oxidation of iodoarenes 1 (Scheme 1). In order to synthesize the iodoarenes, Science of Synthesis Online was used as a tool for literature search. Performing a literature search using this tool, we were able to find an excellent method for the synthesis of iodoarenes."
