Iron-catalyzed acyloxyalkylation of styrene derivatives using hypervalent iodine reagents was achieved. The acyloxyalkylation reaction proceeded using various types of styrenes and hypervalent iodine reagents. The acyloxyalkylated products were obtained in moderate to good yields without loss of the functional groups. The reaction proceeded via the formation of radical species derived from hypervalent iodine reagents by decarboxylation.
