Synthesis of Aryl Sulfides by Decarboxylative C[BOND]S Cross-Couplings

Authors


Abstract

Without the need for organohalide precursors, the convenient and general synthesis of aryl (or diaryl) sulfides can be achieved by using aryl carboxylic acids and thiols or disulfides for decarboxylative C[BOND]S cross-coupling catalyzed by a bimetallic system (see scheme).
