The di-t-butyl peroxide initiated decarbonylations of cyclopropanecarboxaldehyde and 1-methyl- and 1-phenylcyclopropanecarboxaldehyde have been studied. The first of these did not undergo decerbonylation to a measurable extent, while the substituted aldehydes reacted without ring opening to give methyl- and phenylcyclopropane, respectively.
