Catalytic alkene cyclohydroamination via an imido mechanism

Author affiliations

Abstract

Chiral-at-metal half-sandwich diamide complexes catalyse enantioselective cyclohydroamination of aminoalkenes at unexpectedly high rates given their high coordination number and steric bulk; substantial evidence is presented which argues against the established σ-bond insertion process and is strongly indicative of an imido [2+2] cycloaddition mechanism.
