Mild and efficient method for the preparation of iodylarenes by oxidation of iodoarenes with Oxone in aqueous acetonitrile at room temperature is described. This new procedure allows the preparation of various iodylarenes with electron-donating or electron-withdrawing substituents in the aromatic ring including the previously unknown 1,2-diiodylbenzene.
