The anodic oxidation of aryl iodides is a powerful method for the synthesis of hypervalent iodine compounds, which have matured to frequently used reagents in organic synthesis. The electrochemical route eliminates the use of expensive or hazardous oxidants for their synthesis. Hypervalent iodine reagents generated at the anode are successfully used as either in-cell or ex-cell mediators for many valuable chemical transformations including fluorinations and oxidative cyclisations. The recent advances in the area of flow electrochemistry are providing additional benefits and allow new synthetic applications. Mechanistic insights and novel technologies enable the development of new concepts for sustainable chemistry.
