Nickel-mediated radioiodination of aryl and heteroaryl bromides: rapid synthesis of tracers for SPECT imaging

Author(s): A. A. Cant, S. Champion, R. Bhalla, S. L. Pimlott, A. Sutherland

Rapid and efficient radioiodination of aryl and heteroaryl bromides has been achieved using a nickel(0)-mediated halogen-exchange reaction. This transformation gives direct access to [(123)I]- and [(125)I]-imaging agents for single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), such as 5-[(123)I]-A85380 (see scheme, Boc = tert-butyloxycarbonyl, cod = 1,5-cyclooctadiene, TFA = trifluoroacetic acid).
