Copper iodate has a wide range of physicochemical properties which can be modulated by its chemical structure and the organic ligands that are attached to it. It can be found in a variety of molecular complexes as well as extended structures, and is therefore an exciting and versatile platform for the preparation of new materials with interesting physicochemical properties. The most notable examples are the emerging copper(I) perovskite materials for organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs).

Cuprous iodate is a white solid that is soluble in water and alcohol. It is often used as a source of dietary iodine in table salt; it is also added to some laying hen feeds to increase egg quality and iodine content.

In organic chemistry, cuprous iodate is a useful reagent for converting carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds by reactions such as the Heck, Stille, Suzuki, and Sonogashira coupling reactions. It is also effective in the iodination of alkynes. In combination with 1,2- or 1,3-diamine ligands, it catalyzes the conversion of aryl bromides and chlorides to the corresponding iodinated aromatic products.

American Elements supplies cupro-iodate in a number of forms including solution, hydrate, and nanopowder. All forms are produced to the highest industry standards including Mil Spec, ACS, Reagent and Research Grades, and Food, Agricultural and Pharmaceutical Grades. They are also available in a wide range of packaging options including tubes, vials, and bags.
