Abstract: An improved method for the generation of dichlorocarbene was developed that utilizes ultrasound in the reaction of carbon tetrachloride with magnesium. High yields of gem-dichlorocyclopropane derivatives can be obtained in the presence of olefins by this method.
Keywords: Dichlorocarbene; gem-dichlorocyclopropanes; ultrasonic irradiation; olefin addition; magnesium
