A VIII thiolate complex activated C-Cl bond in dichloromethane via S-based nucleophilic attack. The reaction products, a VIII-Cl species (major one) and a VIV binding to a CH2 containing ligand (minor one) were obtained. The work demonstrates sulfur donors in the early-transition metal thiolates having strong nucleophilic characteristics.
