The introduction of trifluoromethylthio groups into organic compounds, in particular heterocycles, is important because of the prevalence of these structures in medicinally and agriculturally relevant molecules. Herein, the silver-mediated oxidative decarboxylative trifluoromethylthiolation of coumarin-3-carboxylic acids is reported. This methodology utilizes existing carboxylic acid functionalities for the direct conversion to CF3S groups and results in a broad scope of 3-trifluoromethylthiolated coumarins, including analogues of natural products, in moderate to excellent yields.
