The diazo group of a series of a-diazo carbonyl compounds can be reduced to the corresponding CH 2 roup by Bu3SnH under Cu(acac) 2-catalytic or photochemical conditions. The mechanistic aspects of this reaction were investigated in some detail, and a possible reaction pathway was discussed. q 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
