A simple, mild, and high yielding procedure for the iodination of alcohols using a combination of NaBH4 and I2 is described. The effectiveness of the protocol is achieved with benzylic alcohols and primary alkylic alcohols whereas allylic and secondary alcohols are found to be unreactive.

Key words: alcohol, iodide, sodium borohydride, iodination
