A facile I2O5-mediated direct oxidative coupling of aromatic alkenes with thiols toward vinyl sulfones has been developed under metal-free conditions. This methodology provides a convenient and efficient approach to various (E)-vinyl sulfones from readily available starting materials with excellent regioselectivity. The present oxidative coupling reaction, not only expands the scope of functionalization of alkenes with thiols, but also makes it a practical and powerful complement to traditional methods for the synthesis of (E)-vinyl sulfones.
