The synthesis of organic compounds using polymer supported catalysts and reagents, where the required product is always in solution, has been of great interest in recent years, both in industries and academia especially in pharmaceutical research. Here, a simple and efficient method for conversion of alcohols into their iodides in high yield using polymer supported 4-(Dimethylamino)pyridine (DMAP) is described. Polymer supported DMAP is used in catalytic amount and is recovered and reused several times. Additionally, this method is highly chemoselective.
