Aryl and vinyl sulfides have attracted much attention from medical and organic chemists because they are prevalent in natural or bioactive molecules and other potential functional organic materials. Therefore, considerable efforts have been made for the construction of aryl and vinyl sulfides, among them transition metal-free direct C-H bond sulfenylation has developed rapidly and became an efficient and eco-friendly synthetic protocol. In recent years, many excellent research achievements were presented and a range of sulfenylated alkenes and arenes were synthesized using this strategy. The recent five-year progress in direct sulfenylation of C-H bond on alkenes and arenes under transition metal-free conditions is reviewed and the corresponding reaction mechanisms are discussed.

Key words: sulfenylation, transition metal-free condition, C-H bond, reaction mechanism
