The hydrothiolation of unsaturated carbon–carbon bonds is a practical and atom-economical approach for the incorporation of sulfur into organic frameworks. In recent years, we have witnessed the development of a range of transition-metal-based catalytic systems for the control of the regio- and stereoselectivity. In this Minireview we highlight the mechanistic background behind this transformation so as to help the design of more specific and active organometallic hydrothiolation catalysts.
