PIDA ((Diacetoxyiodo)benzene) is a hypervalent iodine(III) compound that acts an attractive oxidizing agent in most of the transition metal catalyzed reactions. Can someone explain me the mechanism of PIDA in the hydroxilation of C-H bonds?

    $\begingroup$ Do you have an example of the reaction you’re interested in? The mechanisms of these processes aren’t always well understood and often highly context dependent $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ "most of the transition metal catalyzed reactions" Really? Most of what group of reactions? It certainly isn't most C-H activation reactions. $\endgroup$
