The first nickel-catalyzed phosphinylation of C–S bonds forming C–P bonds is developed. The reaction can proceed readily with the simple Ni(cod)2 at a loading down to 0.1 mol% at the 10 mmol scale. Various aryl sulfur compounds, i.e. sulfides, sulfoxides and sulfones all couple with P(O)–H compounds to produce the corresponding organophosphorus compounds, which provides an efficient new method for the construction of C–P bonds.
