Electron-transfer reductions of unactivated aryl and alkyl iodides with a neutral ground-state organic molecule are reported. The reducing agent 1 is formed in two steps from N-methylbenzimidazole using very simple chemistry, and subsequent treatment of the iodoalkane or -arene with 1 affords cyclized products (see scheme).
