Cleavage of a C–S bond of benzyl mercaptan led to formation of a new C–C bond during (Z)-selective alkenylation of nitriles using 1,10-phenanthroline as organocatalyst and tBuOK as a base. Furthermore, we have shown that the cascaded functionalization of benzylic C–S and aryl–halide bonds could be done in one pot. 1H NMR study and kinetic experiments also helped to establish the mechanism of the reaction.
