Developed herein is a visible-light-driven synthesis of sulfides by an electron donor–acceptor/single electron transfer and hydrogen atom transfer combined system without transition metals and strong oxidants. This reaction proceeds through the excitation of an electron donor–acceptor complex between a thiolate and an aryl halide, followed by the hydrogen atom transfer from an alkane to the generated aryl radical.
