Abstract : Aryidene complexes of ruthenium have been successfully prepared. These complexes possess reasonable stability and undergo cyclopropanation reactions with olefins. Cis-stereochemistry predominates in the latter reactions. A remarkably stable cyclopropyl substituted carbene complex of iron has been prepared. This complex also undergoes cyclopropanation reactions. (Author)
