A new method for direct aromatic iodination with IF, made in situ from the corresponding elements, is described. Depending on the reaction time and temperature, mono- or polyiodination can be achieved. Even deactivated aromatic rings can be directly iodinated without the presence of any Friedel—Crafts catalyst. Sensitive groups such as aromatic aldehydes are not affected by the reagent.
