Abstract

Efficient nitrene precursors: Highly reactive iminoiodane-based nitrene precursors were prepared from ortho-alkoxyiodobenzenes. Owing to the presence of the ortho-substituent on the phenyl ring, these new iminoiodanes have excellent solubility in organic solvents and are efficient reagents for the catalytic aziridination of alkenes or the metal-free tosylamination of organic substrates (see scheme, Ts=tosyl).
