In the presence of nucleophiles (alcohols or amines), ion-supported (diacetoxyiodo)benzene promoted sp3 C-H oxidation of nitromethyl aryl ketones to provide the corresponding α-keto esters and amides in good yields. The reaction is ecofriendly and offers mild conditions, short reaction times, and a recyclable reagent.
