Iodogen (1,3,4,6-tetrachloro-3alpha,6alpha-diphenylglucoluril) is commonly used for the radioiodination of proteins as an oxidative agent. The oxidative character of iodogen is not clear, but the two carbonyl groups in its structure probably have an essential role in its oxidizing character. In this study, the self-radioiodination of iodogen has been examined. It was observed that about 10-20% of the initial iodine radioactivity was consumed for the self-radioiodination of iodogen itself. On… CONTINUE READING
