The synthesis of thioethers in excellent yields was achieved under mild conditions via the displacement reaction of halogens by sulfur. The cross-reaction of 2-(alpha-bromoacetyl) thiophene with triethylamine-activated phosphorus decasulfide (Et3N-P2S5) was elaborated by utilizing DFT calculations.
