Abstract

The purpose of the research was to investigate the reactions of iodine monochloride with non-aromatic and aromatic compounds. The role which this reagent plays in these reactions, the use of various catalysts, and the products obtained were to be studied. It was the immediate object of these investigations to attempt a synthesis of cyclohenzyl iodine directly from cyclohezene using iodine monochloride as the iodinating agent. In studying the non-aromatic compounds in this project, cyclohexene was chosen since it is readily available and yields a single product upon mono-substitution. The major portion of this thesis is concerned with the reaction which takes place when iodine monochloride is brought in contact with cyclohexene in the presence of anhydrous aluminum chloride.
