A mild, scalable, visible-light-promoted cross-coupling reaction between thiols and aryl halides provides various aryl thioethers in the absence of both transition metal and photoredox catalysts. This C-S coupling protocol was also applied in late-stage modifications of active pharmaceutical ingredients.
