Organoheteroatom compounds of phosphorous and sulfur are important in relation to the development of biologically active substances and materials. Conventional synthesis in general employed substitution reactions of organohalogen compounds with heteroatom reagents. It was considered that i) the addition reaction to unsaturated compounds; ii) the substitution reaction of C-H bond; iii) single bond metathesis would be more favorable, since the starting materials are readily available, and the reactions are atom-economical. Described here is the use of transition metal catalysis for such syntheses of organosulfur and organophosphorous compounds.
