(2-Iodoxybenzoic acid)









General Information:


Structure:



CAS Number: 61717-82-6

Molecular Weight: 280.02 g/mol


2-Iodoxybenzoic acid (IBX) is a reagent typically used to oxidize alcohols to aldehydes or ketones. IBX is not soluble in many common organic solvents. Dess-Martin Periodinane is closely related to IBX and has the major benefit of being much more soluble in various solvents. IBX is considered to possibly be shock sensitive.




Common Uses:


Reagent to oxidize primary alcohols to aldehydes

 

 


Reagent to oxidize secondary alcohols to ketones

 




Safety:


2-Iodoxybenzoic acid (IBX) is possibly shock sensitive.
