Applications of hypervalent iodine reagents in organic synthesis : the development of iodonium metathesis reaction and effort towards himandrine Kasahara, Takahito


This thesis discloses two different applications of hypervalent iodine(III) reagents in organic synthesis. In the first part, a novel reactivity of diaryliodonium triflates towards aryl iodides will be discussed. The new mode of reactivity allows various diaryliodonium triflates to be accessed, simply by heating a mixture of electron deficient diaryliodonium triflate with a moderately electron rich aryliodide. In the second part of the thesis, the use of (diacetoxyiodo) benzene in oxidative amidation in the context of total synthesis will be made.
