Buchner and Curtius first reported the cyclopropanation of arenes in 1885. Since the initial discovery, the Buchner reaction has been the subject of significant research by both physical and synthetic organic chemists. Described herein is a brief overview of the Buchner reaction and related arene cyclopropanation processes, with an emphasis on their application to natural product total synthesis.
