Abstract

Sulfur-directed sp C-S bond cleavage along with a regioselective reaction with alkynes proceeded to give (Z)-enyne sulfides in high to excellent yields. Mechanistic studies were conducted, including characterization of an intermediate. An intramolecular variant realized the construction of a dibenzodithiepin skeleton, which is a seven-membered ring with two sulfur atoms.
