Abstract

This review highlights recent achievements in the transformations of 2-acylaziridines toward the synthesis of cyclic and acyclic nitrogen-containing compounds. The influence of a carbonyl group on reaction selectivity is discussed.

1 Introduction

2 Reactions via C–C Bond Cleavage

3 Reactions via C–N Bond Cleavage

3.1 Reactions Starting with the Aziridine Ring Opening

3.2 Reactions Starting at the Carbonyl Group

4 Conclusion
