The Pd0/PdIIdilemma: Several [(NHC)Pd0] complexes are shown to act as very active catalysts in the olefin cyclopropanation reaction with ethyl diazoacetate as the carbene source. A mechanism (see scheme) for this transformation is proposed, in which the same catalytic species is responsible of the decomposition of EDA and subsequent cyclopropanation independent of the catalyst precursor.
