General description

1-Iodo-3,5-dimethylbenzene (5-Iodo-m-xylene) is an aryl halide. It can be obtained from 5-bromo-m-xylene, via copper-catalyzed halogen exchange reaction, in the presence of NaI or KI in n-BuOH or DMF (solvents). It undergoes reaction with phenol in the presence of CuFe2O4 nano powder as a recyclable catalyst to afford 1,3-dimethyl-5-phenoxybenzene.

Application

1-Iodo-3,5-dimethylbenzene (5-iodo-m-xylene) is suitable for use in the synthesis of N-(3,5-xylyl)-N-ethylaniline, an arylamine.
It may be used in the following studies:
  • α-Arylation of ketones.
  • Copper-catalyzed N-arylation of imidazoles.
  • Cyanation of 5-iodo-m-xylene to form 3,5-dimethylbenzonitrile.
  • Synthesis of 1,3-Dimethyl-5-phenoxybenzene by nano-CuFe2O4 catalyzed C-O cross-coupling with phenol.
  • CuBr-catalyzed amination of 1-iodo-3,5-dimethylbenzene to form N-Allyl-3,5-dimethylbenzenamine.
  • Copper-catalyzed C-S bond-formation between 5-iodo-m-xylene and thiophenol.
  • As a starting material in the synthesis of biphenyl-3,3′,5,5′-tetracarboxylic acid.
  • Radical bromination of 5-iodo-m-xylene by N-bromosuccinimide to form 1,3-bis(bromomethyl)-5-iodobenzene.

An efficient copper-catalyzed carbon-sulfur bond formation reaction was developed. This method is particularly noteworthy given its experimental simplicity, high generality, and exceptional level of functional group toleration and the low cost of the catalyst system. [reaction: see text]
