A very general class of operators, acting on functions in ${L^2}({{\mathbf {R}}^d})$, is introduced. The name "paracommutator" has been chosen because of the similarity with the paramultiplication of Bony and also because paracommutators comprise as a special case commutators of Calderón-Zygmund operators, as well as many other interesting examples (Hankel and Toeplitz operators etc.). The main results, extending previous results by Peller and others, express boundedness and Schatten-von Neumann properties of a paracommutator in terms of its symbol.
