The research programme has been concerned with the synthesis and rearrangement of 1,1-dibromocyclopropanes obtained by the addition of dibromocarbene to a number of olefins, including mono and dimethyl substituted styrenes and methyl, ethoxy and aryl substituted dihydronaphthalenes. When passed through a flow system at elevated temperatures (250-450°C) and reduced pressure (>0. 01 mmHz) the cyclopropanes underwent various unimolecuiar rearrangements.
