Laser flash photolysis (LFP) of appropriate diazirine precursors afforded the UV spectra of methylchlorocarbene, benzylchlorocarbene, cyclopropylchlorocarbene, and 1-adamantylchlorocarbene. The σ → p transitions of these carbenes were used to directly monitor their reaction kinetics. The unusual and highly reactive N
