The anodic oxidation of aryl iodides is a powerful method for the synthesis of hypervalent iodine reagents, which eliminates the necessity to use expensive or hazardous chemical oxidizing reagents. The hypervalent iodine reagents generated at the anode are successfully used as either in‐cell or ex‐cell mediators for different valuable chemical transformations such as fluorinations and oxidative cyclizations. More recently, recyclable mediators and catalytic protocols have been developed.
