Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) The potent dehydrating ability of difluoro(aryl)-λ3-iodanes is exploited to develop a convenient 19F-NMR-based aquametry method that is more sensitive than coulometric Karl Fischer titration. The key difluoro(aryl)-λ3- iodane reagents are synthesized readily from commercially available and inexpensive precursors.
