The transition metal mediated synthesis of carbon–sulfur (C–S) bonds is possible with a variety of simple and tailored metal complexes. This chapter serves to illustrate developments over the last decade involving the catalytic synthesis of C–S bonds with various transition metals, focusing on cross-coupling reactions and addition to π-bonds.
