Iodic acid is used in analytical chemistry laboratories to standardize solutions of both weak and strong bases using methyl red or methyl orange as the indicator. It acts as a key starting material to synthesize sodium or potassium iodate, thereby increasing the iodine content of salt.
Oxidizing agent. For selective oxidation of thiols to disulfides and sulfides to sulfoxides by aqueous iodic acid, see: Russ. J. Org. Chem., 37, 1340 (2001). Carbonyl compounds can be regenerated from their oximes in DCM: Tetrahedron Lett., 43, 4023 (2002). For a brief survey of uses in organic synthesis, see: Synlett, 2347 (2006).
