Iodosobenzene is used as an oxidizing and acetoxylating agent in organic synthesis. It is actively involved in the preparation of (Z)-3,7-dimethyl-2,6-octadien-1-al(neral) from (Z)-3,7-dimethyl-2,6-octadien-1-ol (nerol) in presence of 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-1-oxyl (TEMPO). It is a useful reagent for the synthesis of a wide variety of heterocyclic compounds. It is also used in the Pd-catalyzed 2-arylation of indoles.
Insoluble in water.
Light sensitive. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
