APPLICATION OF HYPERVALENT IODINE COMPOUNDS IN ADVANCED GREEN TECHNOLOGIES
This review summarizes industrial applications of inorganic and organic polyvalent (hypervalent) iodine compounds. Inorganic iodate salts have found some application as a dietary supplements and food additives. Iodine pentafluoride is used as industrial fluorinating reagent, and iodine pentoxide is a powerful and selective oxidant that is particularly useful in analytical chemistry. Common organic hypervalent iodine reagents such as (dichloroiodo)benzene and (diacetoxyiodo)benzene are occasionally used in chemical industry as the reagents for production of important pharmaceutical intermediates. Iodonium salts have found industrial application as photoinitiators for cationic photopolymerizations. Various iodonium compounds are widely used as precursors to [18F]-fluorinated radiotracers in the Positron Emission Tomography (PET).
