Mild oxidation of bromides by iodine(III) reagents generated active electrophilic bromination species that were reacted with polyprenoids. By simple and minor variations of an I(III)/Br combination, the reactivity could be selectively steered toward dibromination, oxybromination, or bromocyclization, giving access to a wide array of brominated motifs.
