C2+N1: The transition-metal-catalyzed reaction of alkenes with azides is an important tool for the formation of aziridines. Besides many recently published ruthenium, copper, and manganese catalysts, a novel macrocyclic tetracarbene iron(II) catalyst promotes the synthesis of aziridines in good yields and with low catalyst loadings.
