: The reactivity of the new zinc and copper carbenoids PivOCH2Cu(CN)ZnI (4) and ICH2Cu·ZnI2(5) toward various electrophiles has been investigated. of special interest is the direct and highly stereoselective conversion of allylic bromides to the corresponding homoallylic iodides by using the reagent ICH2Cu·ZnI2(5).
