Graphical Abstract:


Cu-catalyzed thiolation or selenylation of aryl C-H bonds with diaryl disulfides and diphenyl diselenides was accomplished using a readily removable directing group. This protocol represents a convenient route for the formation of valuable diaryl sulfides or diphenyl selenides. This simple method gives a variety of functionalized diphenyl sulfides or diphenyl selenides in moderate to good yields in a simple and efficient way.

Keywords: Diphenyl disulfide/diselenide, directing group, C-H activation, thiolation, selenylation, redox properties.
