The β-hydroxy sulfides are an important class of organosulfur compounds that have a key role in the synthesis of bioactive compounds containing biological and natural products. The thiolysis of epoxides is the most common and best route for the synthesis of β-hydroxy sulfides. During the last decade, the application a diverse range of catalysts and promoter agents in green and organic mediums as well as under solvent-free conditions for the regioselective ring-opening reactions of epoxides with thiols in order to synthesize β-hydroxy sulfides have been studied by various research groups. This review is focused on the recent reported achievements in the field of thiolysis of epoxides within the last 10 years.
