Keywords: Monoiodinated arylamines | arylamines | ortho-periodic acid as oxidant | microwave irradiation.

A fast and simple method for the oxidative iodination of some aromatic amines, either under microwave irradiation or conventional heating, is reported, using diiodine and ortho-periodic acid as the oxidant. The reactions were carried out in boiling CH2Cl2 solutions under a reflux condenser. For the microwave assisted reactions, the reaction times were always notably shortened, but the yields were usually less influenced as compared with the conventional method.
