Abstract

A survey of the recent developments in the chemistry of polyvalent iodine compounds reflects an active current interest in this highly versatile class of valuable reagents. Just in the last five years, a wide variety of new reagents have been introduced, and polyvalent iodine chemistry is employed increasingly in organic synthesis. This surging interest in iodine compounds is mainly due to the very useful oxidizing properties of polyvalent organic iodine reagents, combined with their benign environmental character and commercial availability.
