Polyfluoroaryl sulfide is one of the prevalent motifs ubiquitous in materials and pharmaceutical chemistry. We herein describe a simple yet efficient procedure for their synthesis from readily available thiols and polyfluoroarenes via an SNAr step. We detail specific steps for a gram-scale preparation of 2-((perfluoropyridin-4-yl)thio)benzo[d]thiazole 3 from mercaptobenzothiazole 1 and pentafluoropyridine 2.
