Abstract

Laser flash photolysis of alkylphenyldiazomethanes in the presence of pyridine produces easily detected ylides. The data indicate that photolysis of alkylphenyldiazomethanes leads to both carbene formation and direct formation of rearrangement products which do not derive from relaxed carbene intermediates.
