Abstract

A method was developed for the synthesis of 2-acylbenzo[b]thiophenes via a copper-catalyzed sulfuration of 3-(2-iodophenyl)-1-arylpropan-1-ones with K2S under aerobic conditions. Mechanistically, this procedure was proved to involve the formation of a dihydrobenzo[b]thiophene intermediate.
