8-Quinolinol 5-, 7- and 5,7-sulfonic acids were treated with N-halosuccinimides (NXS) where the halogen atom was chlorine, bromine or iodine under different conditions of solvent, temperature and time. Under neutral or basic conditions the sulfonic acid group was retained while in dilute acid the S03H group was largely displaced by halogen. Excess NXS caused additional electrophilic substitution. Mild hydrolysis of 5-iodo-8-quinolinol- 7-sulfonic acid and 7-iodo-8-quinolinol-5-sulfonic acid with 15% sulfuric acid in acetic acid formed the 5- and 7-iodo-8-quinolinol respectively in high yield

Until 1995, all papers that claimed preparation or further study with monoiodo-8-quinolinol were really working with the 7-iodo isomer. Of the 83 relevant citations 67 dealt with incorrect structural assignments, 13 were critiqued due to errors made in synthesis and interpretation, and 9 had the correct structural assignments. This literature review made the following conclusions apparent. 1. Prototropic forms of 8- quinolinol influence orientation of electrophiles. 2. Under strong acidic conditions, the 5 position is favored. 3. Under mild acidic conditions, mixtures of 5 and 7 substituted compounds are formed. 4. Under basic conditions, the incoming electrophile favors the 7 ...
