- Cerium(IV) ammonium nitrate was found to be a versatile reagent for the oxidative functionalization of styrenes using N-hydroxyphthalimide and iodine affording three different types of products with oxyphthalimide, nitrate and iodide groups. It was shown that reaction of styrenes with N-hydroxyphthalimide and cerium(IV) ammonium nitrate can be selectively directed to oxynitro-oxyphthalimides and dioxyphthalimides depending on the reaction conditions, in particular a solvent. Reaction of styrenes with iodine under the action of N-hydroxyphthalimide and cerium(IV) ammonium nitrate leads to the formation of iodo-oxyphthalimides.
