A one-pot synthesis of aryl(2,4,6-trimethoxyphenyl)iodonium salts from aryl iodides, m-CPBA, p-toluenesulfonic acid, and trimethoxybenzene is fast, provides a high yield of product, and has broad substrate scope. The utility of these reagents is demonstrated in arylation reactions with C-, N-, O-, and S-nucleophiles.
