Organosulfonyloxy derivatives of 1,2-benziodoxol-3(1H)-one (3a-c) and 3,3-bis(trifluoromethyl)-3(1H)-1,2-benziodoxole (5a-c) can be prepared in high yield by the reaction of 1-hydroxybenziodoxoles 1 or 4 and the corresponding sulfonic acids or Me3SiOTf in the form of stable, but moderately hygroscopic, microcrystalline solids. Reaction of the triflate derivatives 3a and 5a with alkynyltrimethylsilanes affords either alkynyliodonium triflates 6, or (E)-β-(trifluoromethanesulfonyloxy)-alkenyliodonium triflates 7, while the same reaction in the presence of pyridine selectively gives the respective 1-alkynylbenziodoxoles 8 and 9 in 82-90% yield.
