This thesis describes a novel reaction protocol for the synthesis of bis (4-tert-butylphenyl) iodonium (BtPhI) hexafluoroantimonate (2) via the formation of diacetoxy (t-butylphenyl)-λ3-iodane (1). It is also important to provide a safe and robust reaction procedure for future scaled-up production.
