A palladium-catalyzed carbothiolation via the reaction of a σ-alkyl palladium intermediate with a TIPS thioether is described. It was found that the use of Cs2CO3, (IPr)Pd(allyl)Cl, and a TIPS thioether was key to obtaining alkyl aryl and dialkyl sulfides in high yield through the reaction of a σ-alkyl palladium intermediate. The developed reaction is applicable to a wide range of substrates and thiols.
