A copper-catalyzed dichloromethylazidation of alkenes using commercially available BrCCl2H as a stoichiometric dichloromethylating reagent has been reported. Mechanistic studies indicated that a dichloromethyl radical was involved in the catalytic cycle. This transformation has demonstrated mild conditions, high reactivity, excellent functional-group tolerance, and a broad substrate scope, and thus it has offered a new solution for difunctionalization of alkenes to make diverse transformable dichloromethylated molecules.
