The reaction of secondary amines with CS2 under mild conditions using reduced graphene oxide (rGO) as a green catalyst was reported, which provided an efficient access to the one-pot synthesis of bis(aminothiocarbonyl)disulfides. The rGO can be recycled at least four times without any loss of catalytic activity. A plausible mechanism was proposed.
