Ruthenium-catalyzed deaminative redistribution of primary and secondary amines

Abstract

A ruthenium-hydride complex: [Ru(H)(Cl)(CO)(PCy3)2] was found to be active in the highly selective redistribution of primary and secondary amines. This new deaminative coupling of amines enables highly selective synthesis of secondary amines from primary amines and of tertiary amines from secondary amines with evolution of ammonia. Preliminary mechanistic view of this novel reaction based on catalytic experiments using NMR methods confirms the synthetic observations.
