A range of enantiomerically pure iodine compounds has been synthesised and either oxidised to the corresponding hypervalent iodine compound and used as oxidant or employed as catalysts in a range of reactions together with different oxidants in stoichiometric amounts in order to form the respective hypervalent iodine species in situ. Three different enantioselective catalytic reactions have been investigated: cc-acetoxylation of ketones, halolactonisation of pentenoic acids and oc-oxytosylation of ketones. Also - probably for the first time - alkyliodides have been employed as catalysts in these transformations.
