Thermally induced reactions of donor/acceptor diazo compounds generate carbene intermediates capable of C–H functionalization reactions of alkanes. A variety of C–H insertion products were obtained in moderate to good yields and in certain cases with good site selectivity, favoring the functionalization of the more highly substituted C–H bond.
