By means of a simple procedure, we prepared α-acetoxyketones from a variety of enolizable ketones with PhI(OAc)2 in the presence of acetic acid. The selectivity of the reactions depended on steric hindrance, and some other reactions were observed, such as the formation of N=N or C=C double bonds through an oxidation reaction.

Keywords: Functionalization α to a carbonyl group; α-acetoxyketones; (diacetoxyiodo)benzene; selectivity
