A novel synthesis recipe for β-alkoxy methyl sulfides was developed via NH4I-mediated three-component oxysulfenylation reaction of styrenes with DMSO and alcohols. This method features simple operation and readily available starting materials, and it provides an alternative sulfenylating agent generated from DMSO for oxysulfenylation reactions.
