Abstract: 1999 stereochemistry stereochemistry (general, optical resolution) O 0030 -034Transition-Metal-Catalyzed Carbenoid Reactions of Sulfonium Ylides.-The Rh(II)-and Cu(I)-catalyzed decomposition of diphenylsulfonium methylide (II) in the presence of various olefins is studied in order to develop a synthetic alternative for carbenoid olefin cyclopropanation that replaces toxic and explosive diazo compounds. For comparison the same reactions are studied using diazoacetate (V). The product distribution for the Rh(II…
