Abstract

Molecular iodine has established itself as a readily available and easy-to-handle electrophilic and oxidizing reagent used in various organic transformations. In this review attention is focused on the use of molecular iodine in promoting cyclization (iodocyclization and cyclodehydroiodination) of tethered heteroatom-containing alkenyl or alkynyl systems.
Keywords: iodine; iodocyclization; cyclodehydroiodination iodine; iodocyclization; cyclodehydroiodination
