Abstract

The results of time-resolved laser flash spectrometric studies of singlet arylhalocarbenes are reviewed. In particular, the absolute rate constants for reactions of phenylchlorocarbene and related carbenes with alkenes are summarized and systematized. The experiments described provide the basis for a detailed examination of carbenic reactivity-selectivity principles. The results of studies on the influence of temperature on the absolute rate constants for carbene reactions are consistent with the existence of transient carbene/alkene intermediates.
