Introduction

Iodoxybenzene (PhIO2, mp 230 ˚C) is the first organic compound of iodine(V) prepared by Willgerodt 100 years ago. [¹] Specifically, it can be prepared by disproportionation of iodosylbenzene under steam distillation. [²] Ten years ago iodoxybenzene has been used for the synthesis of cadalenquinone, [³a] unsaturated carbonyl compounds [³b-c] , oxodienes, [³d-e] , epoxides, [³f] quinine imines, [³g] and sulfones. [³h] In this Spotlight recent applications using PhIO2 in organic syntheses are summarized.
