Flow chemistry is considered to be a versatile and complementary methodology for the preparation of valuable organic compounds. We describe a straightforward approach for the synthesis of iodonium trifluoroacetates through the direct oxidation of iodoarenes in a simple flow reactor using an Oxone-filled cartridge. Optimization has been carried out using the Nelder–Mead algorithm. The procedure allows a wide range of iodonium salts to be prepared from simple starting materials.
