Properties: Stable, nonhygroscopic crystalline solid. Colorless fine needles from dichloroethane, mp 140-142° (Neiland), also reported as colorless prisms from diethyl ether + methanol, mp 136-138.5° (Koser et al.). Sparingly sol in acetonitrile and dichloromethane at room temp. Readily dissolves in acetonitrile near the reflux temp. to give a yellow soln. Sol in dimethylformamide, alcohols and water with the formation of a yellow color. Sol in chloroform and acetic acid to give a colorless soln. Soly in water at 22°: ca. 1 g/42 mL.
Melting point: mp 140-142° (Neiland), also reported as colorless prisms from diethyl ether + methanol; mp 136-138.5° (Koser et al.)
Use: Versatile synthetic reagent in phenyliodination and/or tosylation of a range of organic substrates; in oxidative transformations including oxidative rearrangements.
