Abstract / Description of output

Dicholocarbene can be generated at a carbon cathode from dichlorodibromomethane in microemulsions. The carbene then reacts with the organic constituent of the microemulsion to generate 7,7-dichlorobicycloheptane. A variety of reaction conditions were investigated, and the best conditions give a current efficiency of 80%.
