The results of reactions of a series of aromatic substrates with iodine, iodine(I) chloride, and N-iodosuccinimide in solution and solid phase were compared for the first time. In all cases, the general relations holding in the iodination process were similar. Iodine(I) chloride was found to chlorinate anthracene. A high efficiency of solid-phase iodination of β-diketones was demonstrated using dibenzoylmethane as an example.
