Visible-light photoredox catalysis achieved a dehydrogenative coupling of phosphines and thiophenols at room temperature. Key to this success is the use of benzaldehyde as a soft oxidant, which avoids phosphine oxidation. Furthermore, an unexpected dealkylative coupling of secondary and tertiary alkylphosphines with thiophenols is observed.
