Abstract

A simple, mild, and efficient method for the conversion of primary alcohols and aldehydes to N-hydroxysuccinimide esters with (diacetoxyiodo)benzene in high yield is developed. N-Hydroxysuccinimide acts not only as an esterification partner but also as an activator of PhI(OAc)2 in this reaction.
