/n

The stereochemistry of the iodolactonization of unsaturated acids to give -lactones can be controlled in some cases. Using I2_-_NaHCO3, the product is under kinetic control, but in acetonitrile, without base, the reaction is reversible and therefore under thermodynamic control. For tabulated results, see: Org. Synth. Coll, 7, 164 (1990):

Iodolactamisation of amides can similarly be achieved by prior silylation: J. Org. Chem., 53, 4006 (1988); Org. Synth. Coll., 9, 516 (1998):

Secondary, tertiary or benzylic alcohols can be converted directly to the corresponding iodides by simply refluxing with iodine in petroleum ether: Tetrahedron Lett., 36, 609 (1995).

/n

Iodine is also a useful mild oxidant, e.g. of aldehydes to acids in alkaline medium: Tetrahedron Lett., 33, 4329 (1992); in DMSO, stilbenes and diaryl acetylenes give benzils: Synthesis, 131 (1991); with hydrogen peroxide, hydroquinones are oxidized to quinones: J. Org. Chem., 54, 718 (1989).
