Diazocarbonyl compounds have broad applications in organic chemistry research. They can be applied
to synthesize epoxides and aziridines, which are valuable small heterocycles. This review discusses selected examples
that produce epoxides and aziridines from diazocarbonyl compounds under catalytic conditions and in a selective
Keywords: Diazocarbonyl compounds, epoxide, aziridine, metal carbene, ylide, Lewis acid catalysis.
