Thiocyano and selenocyano are both important functional groups with broad application in organic synthesis. Such functional structures also occur frequently in molecules possessing valuable biological and pharmaceutical activities, optical functions, and catalytic profiles. Therefore, developing synthetic methods toward diverse organo thio-/selenocyanates as well as the tandem annulation for the construction of diverse heterocyclic scaffolds keep receiving high interests. The advances on the synthesis of organo thio-/selenocyanates via transition metal-free C—H thiocyanation or selenocyanation as well as the tandem annulation reactions based on such C—H functionalization are reviewed.

Key words: transition metal-free, C—H bond, thiocyanation, selenocyanation, thermochemistry, photocatalysis
