Radiosynthesis of SPECT tracers via a copper mediated 123I iodination of (hetero)aryl boron reagents.


A general method for the copper mediated nucleophilic 123I-iodination of (hetero)aryl boronic esters and acids has been developed. The broad substrate scope of this radiosynthetic approach allows access to [123I]DPA-713, [123I]IMPY, [123I]MIBG and [123I]IPEB that are four commonly used SPECT radiotracers. Our results infer that aryl boronic reagents can now… (More)
