Insoluble in water.


[Bis(trifluoroacetoxy)iodo]benzene acts as a reagent in Pummerer-like reactions. It plays an important role in the direct alfa-hydroxylation of ketones under acidic conditions. It is involved in the cyclization of styryl amines to N-alkyl or N-aryl indoles. It serves as a reagent for the chemoselective deprotection of dimethoxybenzyl ethers and tosyloxylation of anilides. Further, it is used in the synthesis of 1,3,4-oxadiazoles by the oxidation of N-acylhydrazones. In addition to this, it is employed in the Hofmann rearrangement for the conversion of cyclobutanecarboxamide to cyclobutylamine hydrochloride.


Light and moisture sensitive. Keep the container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with strong bases.


Hypervalent iodine oxidizing agent, cf Iodosobenzene diacetate, B24531. PIFA oxidizes hydroquinones and catechols to benzoquinones. In the presence of a nucleophile, 4-substituted phenols give the corresponding 4,4-disubstituted cyclohexadienone: J. Chem. Soc., Perkin 1, 1891 (1993); 2047 (1994), and refs. therein. In water, 1,4-dimethoxy aromatics undergo oxidative demethylation to p-quinones: Tetrahedron Lett., 42, 6899 (2001). In TFA, acetanilides can be hydroxylated in the p-position: J. Org. Chem., 67, 7424 (2002).

Terminal alkynes are oxidized by PIFA to ɑ-hydroxy ketones: Tetrahedron Lett., 26, 3837 (1985).

Primary amides undergo a Hofmann-like rearrangement to amines, avoiding the harsh conditions often required for the classical method: J. Org. Chem., 49, 4272, 4277 (1984); Synth. Commun., 18, 1615 (1988); Org. Synth. Coll., 8, 132 (1993). Promotes the azidation of alkyl groups of p-alkylanisoles with TMS azide: Tetrahedron Lett., 32, 4321 (1991); J. Am. Chem. Soc., 116, 3684 (1994); Synlett, 427 (1994), and also the direct nucleophilic sulfenylation and thiocyanation of phenol ethers with thiols and TMS isothiocyanate respectively: Synlett, 211 (1995); J. Org. Chem., 60, 7144 (1995).

Mediates the selective cyanation of electron-rich aromatics with Trimethyl­silyl­ cyanide, A19598, e.g. indoles to 2-cyanoindoles: Org. Lett., 7, 537 (2005).
