Direct amination of the antiaromatic NiII norcorrole

The introduction of amino-substituents to an antiaromatic NiII norcorrole complex was accomplished regioselectively upon simple treatment with various amines without any catalysts. The optical and electrochemical properties of the amino norcorroles were substantially modulated by electron-donating amino groups.
