A novel method for alpha-hydroxylation of ketones using substoichiometric amount of iodine under metalfree conditions is described. This method has been successfully employed in synthesizing a variety of heterocyclic compounds, which are useful precursors. alpha-Hydroxylation of diketones and triketones are illustrated. This strategy provides a novel, efficient, mild and inexpensive method for alpha-hydroxylation of aryl ketones using a sub-stoichiometric amount of molecular iodine.
