Tetrahydrofuranylation of alcohols using hypervalent iodine reagents

French, Andrew N., Cole, Jonathan and Wirth, Thomas 2004. Tetrahydrofuranylation of alcohols using hypervalent iodine reagents. Synlett (13) , pp. 2291-2294. 10.1055/s-2004-832810

Full text not available from this repository.


Alcohols are converted to their corresponding 2-tetrahydrofuranyl ethers using (diacetoxyiodo)benzene in THF. Reactions are carried out under reflux, or, more effectively, under microwave irradiation. Yields up to 81% are reported without the use of chlorinated solvents.
