The reactions of a series of 1,2,3,4-tetrahydropyridin-2-ones with trimethylsilyldiazomethane using catalytic amounts of copper(II) triflate in refluxing 1,2-dichloroethane yielded exclusively 3-oxo-2-azabicyclo[4.1.0]heptanes in good yields. The application of ultrasonic radiation enhanced the reaction rate and allowed the reactions to be conducted at room temperature.
