A highly efficient palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling of arenethiols and arylhydrazines with molecular oxygen as the sole oxidant provides unsymmetrical diaryl sulfides. The only byproducts are water and nitrogen. The reaction tolerates a broad range of functional groups, including reactive iodides.
