p-Toluenesulfonate esters of (E)- and (Z)-3-(tri-n-butylstannyl)-2-propen-1-ol readily react with nucleophiles to give vinylstannanes which are substrates for rapid, efficient and stereospecific radioiododestannylation at the no-carrier-added level. This general approach is illustrated by syntheses of iodinated spiperone analogs for studies of dopamine D2 receptors.
