In this presentation the novel regioselective halogenation of arenes or phenols with dimethyldioxirane and Bu4NX is described. The results showed that a new, versatile and mild method can be utilized for preparation of aryl halides starting with arenes or phenols. Finally, this aryl halide forming methodology is applicable to structurally more complex flavonoids.

Keywords: Dimethyldioxirane, regioselective halogenation, Bu4NX, flavonoids
