The electrophilic sulfenylation of a series of indoles and pyrroles with arylsulfenamides in the presence of phophorus(V) oxohalide has been studied. It has been shown that arylsulfenylation of indoles led to products with substitution at position 3, while in the case of pyrrole it occurred at position 2.
