A general protocol for the Pd-catalyzed thiocarbonylation of aryl iodides with stoichiometric carbon monoxide has been established employing a catalytic system composed of Pd(OAc)2 and DPEphos with low catalyst loading (1 mol %). Both electron-rich and -deficient aryl iodides proved effective for these couplings with aryl and alkyl thiols. The choice of the metal ligands and the solvent system was crucial for the efficiency and chemoselectivity of these transformations.
