During the past several decades, hypervalent iodine reagents have been widely
used in various organic transformations. Specifically, these exclusive classes of reagents
have been extensively used for the construction of carbon-carbon bonds. This review aims
to cover all the reactions involving the construction of carbon-carbon bonds mediated by
hypervalent iodine reagents, providing references and highlights for synthetic chemists
who are interested in hypervalent iodine chemistry.
Keywords: Hypervalent iodine reagents, C-C bond formation, metal-free, oxidation, organic transformation, iodine chemistry.
