A task-specific ionic liquid, [bmim]OH, has been found to be a highly efficient catalyst for one-pot three-component coupling of aryl aldehydes, nitromethane, and thiols for the synthesis of β-nitro sulfides in water. The main advantages of the present protocol include the use of inexpensive simple substrates and an ionic liquid as a basic catalyst.
