A Comparison of Microwave-Accelerated and Conventionally Heated Iodination Reactions of Some Arenes and Heteroarenes, Using Ortho-Periodic Acid as the Oxidant
Published: 01 November 2004 by MDPI in The 8th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session Symposium on Microwave Assisted Synthesis
Abstract: A fast and simple method for the oxidative iodination of some activated arenes and heteroarenes, either under microwave irradiation or by conventional heating, is reported, using diiodine and ortho-periodic acid as the oxidant. The reactions were carried out in hot 95% ethanol under a reflux condenser. For the microwave assisted reactions, the reaction times were always notably shortened, but the yields were nearly the same as those afforded by the conventional method.
