A new pseudocyclic triflate derivative of benziodoxole (IBA-OTf) was prepared and characterized by X-ray analysis. This highly electrophilic reagent readily reacts with various organic substrates to give the corresponding products in good yields. Furthermore, IBA-OTf can be used as a catalyst with m-chloroperoxybenzoic acid as the terminal oxidant. This journal is
