New triphenylphosphorane-derived phenyliodonium triflates and tosylates were prepared by the reaction of the appropriate iodosobenzene sulfonate with stabilized phosphonium ylides. Structure of the triflate derivative was determined by a single-crystal X-ray analysis. These compounds represent a potentially useful class of reagents that combine in one molecule synthetic advantages of a phosphonium ylide and an iodonium salt.
