Recently, non-diazo carbene precursors have attracted more and more interest because of the apparent
safety reason. As one of the most reliable and useful non-diazo carbenoid precursors, enynal/enynone can give rise
to furyl- or pyrylium-carbene, which has be applied in a wide range of carbene-transfer reactions, such as cyclopropanation,
C-H and X-H insertion, 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition and ylide formation reaction.
Keywords: Carbene, enynal, enynone, cyclopropanation, C-H insertion, X-H insertion.
