Abstract

A novel and highly regioselective ammonium iodide-induced nonradical sulfenylation method for the construction of a C-S bond was developed via C-H functionalization. With DMSO or R1SO2NHNH2 as a sulfenylating agent, MeS- and R1S-substituted flavone derivatives were obtained in good yields. This method enriches current C-S bond formation chemistry, making it a highly valuable and practical method in pharmaceutical industry.
