Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We report the elusive X-ray structure of the Dess-Martin periodinane (DMP), a hypervalent iodine reagent popular amongst synthetic chemists. In the solid state, the highly crystalline compound forms an intricate coordination polymer held together by intermolecular halogen and hydrogen bonds.
