Transition metal-free synthesis of synthetically valuable aryl iodides from aryl diazofluroborates
in water under mild conditions has been described. Majority of synthesized aryl iodides are obtained
in quantitative yields (>99 %) under present reaction conditions. The structural effects due to the
substituents present on aryl diazofluoroborates did not show any satisfactory effect on the yields of the
aryl iodides. Hence, the methodology presented here was found to be adventitious for the quantitative
production of synthetically valuable aryl iodides.
Keywords: Aryl iodides, diazofluoroborates, potassium iodide, quantitative protocol, transition metal-free, organic.
