The thermal stability of pseudocyclic and cyclic N-heterocycle-stabilized (hydroxy)aryl-and mesityl(aryl)-λ3-iodanes (NHIs) through thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is investigated. Peak decomposition temperatures (Tpeak) were observed within a wide range between 120 and 270 °C. Decomposition enthalpies (ΔHdec) varied from-29.81 to 141.13 kJ/mol. A direct comparison between pseudocyclic and cyclic NHIs revealed high Tpeak but also higher ΔHdec values for the latter ones. NHIs bearing N-heterocycles with a high N/C-ratio such as triazoles show among the lowest Tpeak and the highest ΔHdec values. A comparison of NHIs with known (pseudo)cyclic benziodoxolones is made and we further correlated their thermal stability with reactivity in a model oxygenation.
