A useful method for preparing radioiodinated photoaffinity labels from alkyl anilines which offers significant advantages over present methods is described. The one‐pot synthesis gives good radiochemical yields (40–64%) of pure, high specific activity (350–1500 mCi/μmol) 125I labelled iodoaryl azides while minimising manipulation of radioactive materials. Purification of the [125I]iodoazido photoaffinity labels is achieved by high performance liquid chromatography.
