An interesting procedure for thioester synthesis via nickel-catalyzed thiocarbonylation of arylboronic acid with sulfonyl chlorides as the sulfur source has been explored. Using Mo(CO)6 as a solid CO surrogate and reductant, a broad range of thioesters were obtained in moderate to good yields with good functional group tolerance.
