Organic thioether compounds had found extensive applications in the field of medicine, biology, agriculture, optical material and so on. The protocols synthesizing thioethers have always been an attractive interest to researchers. So far, various preparation methods involving diverse catalysts and promote reagents have been reported. A wide scope of newly published vital articles referring reactions of organic halides, alkenes, arenes, heteroaromatics and organic borides with sulfur source thiols, thiophenols, thioamides, potassium xanthate, potassium thiocyanate, elemental sulfur, sodium thiomethoxide, sodium sulfide, carbon disulphide, disulfides, sulfonyl hydrazides, AgSCF3, CuSCF3 with transition metal complexes catalyzation or with metal free method are comprehensively summarized in this review.
Thioether, organic halides, arenes, borides, sulfur source, transition metal catalyzation, metal free.
