An efficient ring-closure of 2-iodo diaryl thioether at the presence of palladium catalyst to form dibenzothiophene is described. After the best condition was set up as Pd3(dba)2 as the catalyst, anhydrous Cu(OAc)2 as additive, PivONa.H2O as base, DMF as solvent, a series of dibenzothiophenes could be successfully obtained through this protocol in moderate to excellent yields.
