Palladium-catalyzed carbothiolation of terminal alkynes with azolyl sulfides affords various 2-(azolyl)alkenyl sulfides with perfect regio- and stereoselectivities. The present addition reaction proceeded through a direct cleavage of carbon–sulfur bonds in azolyl sulfides. The resulting adducts that are useful intermediates in organic synthesis are further transformed to multisubstituted olefins containing azolyl moieties.
