Iodine catalyzes simple and practical syntheses of 2-aroylbenzothiazoles and 2-arylbenzothiazoles from 2-aminobenzenethiols and acetophenones under metal-free conditions. Reactions in DMSO as oxidant and reaction medium provide 2-aroylbenzothiazoles, whereas the use of nitrobenzene as oxidant in dioxane as solvent enables the synthesis of 2-arylbenzothiazoles.
