Microreactors: A highly efficient continuous-flow process has been developed for the synthesis of diazoesters from arylsulfonylhydrazones by means of in-flow Bamford–Stevens reactions. Furthermore, a range of α-alkoxy and α-amino acid derivatives have been prepared in excellent yields through rhodium(II)-mediated O[BOND]H and N[BOND]H insertions, without the need to isolate or handle the potentially hazardous diazo species (see scheme).
