A process in which a phenol derivative is iodinated to produce a 2-iodophenol or 2,6-diiodophenol derivative substituted with iodine at an ortho position thereof is provided, which does not require any step of recovery of iodine but can produce it at low cost, in high yield and with high quality. A phenol derivative is mixed with a pyridine and hydrogen peroxide or iodic acid as an oxidizing agent, and reacted with molecular iodine. As a result, iodination can be performed very efficiently with iodine in an amount close to the theoretical amount relative to the phenol derivative, and the 2-iodophenol or 2,6-diiodophenol derivative can be obtained in high yield and with high quality.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
