Visible-Light-Induced C–H Sulfenylation Using Sulfinic Acids

Abstract

Visible light and Eosin B-catalyzed the direct sulfenylation of sp2 C-H bond with sulfinic acids through a photoredox process has been initially demonstrated at room temperature under transition-metal-free conditions. Diverse heteroaryl sulfides were obtained in moderate to good yields. This is the first example for the sulfenylation of sp2 C-H bond using arylsulfinic acids as the odorless sulfur reagents under visible-light-induced conditions. More interestingly, reductive products could be obtained under visible-light-induced oxidative conditions. This protocol exhibits a new model of C-S bond formation, which serves as a novel approach toward heteroaryl sulfides.
