Abstract

A rhodium(I)-N-heterocyclic carbene complex achieved a high-yield decarbonylation reaction of cyclobutanones to selectively afford cyclopropanes. With this catalyst, a cyclobutanone having an aldehyde moiety underwent chemoselective decarbonylation of the ketonic carbonyl group with the aldehydic carbonyl group left intact.
