This review summarizes the chemistry of iodonium salts with emphasis of their synthetic applications. The preparation and reactions of diaryliodonium, alkenyl(aryl)iodonium, alkynyl(aryl)iodonium, and alkyl(aryl)iodonium salts are overviewed. Application of these reagents allows mild and highly selective arylations, alkenylations, alkynylations, and alkylations of various organic and inorganic substrates in a facile and environmentally friendly manner.
