The 2 : 1 adduct as the final product of the addition of tetrachloromethane to 1,5-hexadiene catalyzed by copper(I)-butylamine complex was obtained in high yield (96%) under mild reaction conditions. Predominant 1 : 1 adduct formation was observed in the presence of a palladium catalyst or dibenzoyl peroxide initiator.
