Applications

Catalyst for cyclopropanation of alkenes, oxidation of alcohols, cyclization reactions involving ?-diazo carbonyl groups, insertion into C-H and X-H bonds (X-H is NH or SH or OH) and for ylide formation. More reactive and useful in differentiating ribonucleosides and deoxynucleosides. It is also used in functionalizing fullerenes into polymers. Efficient catalyst for hydrogen transfer from 2-propanol to cyclohexanone and other unsaturated compounds.

Notes

Stable under normal conditions.
