Reaction of the methyleneaziridine 1 with carbon pronucleophiles (2, H-CR3) proceeds smoothly in the presence of a palladium catalyst affording the corresponding hydrocarbonation products 5 in good to high yields. In the absence of palladium catalysts, the reaction of 1a with 2a at 120 °C afforded the ring opened product 9 in good yield.
