Monosubstituted cyclopropenes are usually not stable at room temperature. This poster will show a new way to make monosubstituted cyclopropenes that are stable at room temperature, starting from acetylenes and ethyl diazoacetate. This poster also describes diastereoselective organozinc addition to these substrates.
