    A decarbonylative aryl thioether synthesis by nickel catalysis is described. After optimization of the reaction conditions, two air-stable Ni catalytic systems [Ni(OAc)2/PnBu3 and Ni(OAc)2/dppb] were identified. Using these catalysts, various aryl thioesters can be converted to the corresponding aryl thioethers in decarbonylative fashion.
