Iodobenzene is used to prepare biphenyl and stilbene. It reacts with magnesium to form the Grignard reagent, a phenylmagnesium iodide used in organic synthesis. It finds application as a solid chlorine source by reacting with chlorine to form a complex, iodobenzene dichloride. It serves as a substrate in Sonogashira reaction which is used to form a carbon-carbon bond between a terminal alkyne and an aryl halide.

In the presence of Pd catalysts, couples with a wide range of acrylic species or allylic alcohols in the Heck reaction. For example (2-methyl-2-propen-1-ol), see: Org. Synth. Coll., 7, 361 (1990).
