m-lodosylbenzoic acid performs iodinations of arenes in the presence of iodine at room temperature in acetonitrile. Separation of pure products is conveniently achieved by scavenging any aryl iodide by ion exchange with IRA-900 (hydroxide form). The reduced form of the reagent, m-iodobenzoic acid, can be easily recovered from the ion exchange resin or from the basic aqueous solution by simple acidification with HCl.
