The use of copper(Ι) iodide as a catalyst, 4′-(4-methoxyphenyl)-2,2′:6′,2′′-terpyridine as ligand, and KOH as the base enables an efficient and convenient protocol for the copper-catalyzed reaction of aryl iodides with diorganyl disulfides and diselenides. Various symmetrical and unsymmetrical diaryl- and aryl alkyl chalcogenides were synthesized with good functional group tolerance and chemoselectivity.
