Hypervalent iodine oxidation of various flavonols (1a-1f) and α-naphthoflavonol (3) using [hydroxy(tosyloxy)iodo]benzene (HTIB) in methanol leads to the formation of 2,3-dimethoxy-3-hydroxyflavanones (2a-2f) and 2,3-dimethoxy-3-hydroxy-α-naphthoflavanone (4) respectively. HTIB resembles periodic acid in its oxidative behavior towards flavonols.
