Abstract

Methyltrioxorhenium (MTO) was found to catalyze the transfer of the nitrene unit of [N-(p-tolylsulfonyl)imino]-iodobenzene to a number of olefins providing aziridines in moderate to good yields, establishing MTO as a universal catalyst for the [1 + 2] cycloaddition of carbene, nitrene, and oxo units to olefins.
