Symmetrical trithiocarbonates were readily synthesized in excellent yields by reaction of carbon disulfide and various aryl or alkyl halides under mild reaction conditions in the presence of Copper(I) –Terpyridine as an efficient catalyst. This method allows the synthesis of symmetrical trithiocarbonates in short times without the use of highly toxic starting materials.
