Convenient and simple, sequential diazotization-iodination of aromatic amines with NaNO2/KI in the presence of a sulfonic acid based cation-exchange resin in water is an inexpensive, noncorrosive and eco-friendly synthetic route, that allows the preparation of various electron-rich and deficient iodoarenes in good yields.
