There are two different ring-opening modes of aziridines: ring-opening of aziridines via carbon-nitrogen bond cleavage, and ring-opening of aziridines via carbon-carbon bond cleavage. Among them, the reaction of aziridines via carbon-nitrogen bond cleavage has been reported in many reviews. The cycloaddition reactions of donor-acceptor (D-A) aziridines via carbon-carbon bond cleavage in recent 20 years are mainly summarized. Under some proper catalysts, the ring-opening of D-A aziridines via carbon-carbon bond cleavage yield azomethine ylides, which can undergo [3+n] cycloaddition reaction with aldehydes, imines, alkenes, alkynes, indoles etc.

Key words: D-A aziridines, carbon-carbon bond cleavage, cycloaddition reaction, azomethine ylide
