Abstract: Prompted by the scant attention paid by published literature reviews to the applications of molecular iodine in oxidative aromatization reactions, we decided to review methods developed to-date involving iodine as an oxidant to promote aromatization of α,β-unsaturated cyclic compounds.
Keywords: iodine; oxidative aromatization; α,β-unsaturated cyclic compounds
