In recent years, a large number of organic reactions have been investigated using molecule iodine-catalyzed and iodine-induced methods. Therefore, many new compounds have been synthesized using molecular iodine. Iodine is an inexpensive weak Lewis acid, non-toxic, and readily available reagent for various organic transformations and yields products with outstanding selectivity with minimum by products. In view of the increasingly expanding field of molecular iodine-mediated reactions and significant attention in this area from academic and industrial scientists, we believe a respectable journal should publish a whole issue on iodine mediated reactions toward the synthesis of important organic compounds under environmentally benign conditions. I am delighted that Molecules have come forward and ask me to take over this responsibility.
The main objective of this issue will be to provide useful information to researchers and students who are interested in the chemistry of iodine and its fascinating role in organic synthesis. Efforts will be made to include not only the synthesis of organic compounds but also to understand the mechanism of iodine-mediated reactions in different solvents including in water.
In summary, I have no doubt that this volume in Molecules will be extremely valuable resource for many groups who are working on organoiodine chemistry.
