Direct and efficient synthesis of 1-naphthols has been realized via Rh(III)-catalyzed C–H activation of sulfoxonium ylides and subsequent annulation with alkynes, where the sulfoxonium ylide functioned as a new traceless bifunctional directing group. This reaction occurred under redox-neutral conditions with a broad substrate scope.
