Aminations with Hypervalent Iodine

  • Kilian MuñizEmail author
Part of the Topics in Current Chemistry book series (TOPCURRCHEM, volume 373)


Recent progress in the area of hypervalent iodine-mediated and catalyzed amination reaction of hydrocarbons is reviewed. These reactions comprise processes under both intra and intermolecular control and include the functionalization of aromatic C–H bonds as well as conversion of sp-, sp2-, and sp3-hybridized carbon atoms. These developments demonstrate that hypervalent iodine(III) methodology has reached a high level in amination chemistry. The individual reactions are discussed with a focus on mechanistic details and emphasis is made to the underlying hypervalent iodine reagents, for which structural information is available.
