    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A practical synthesis of highly functionalized amines by the formal hydroamination reaction of alkenes with nitroarenes catalyzed by an air stable amine-bis(phenolate) iron(III) complex is reported. The reaction uses an easily handled silane, low catalyst loadings, and mild reaction conditions. A wide range of substrates are transformed with synthetically useful yields (21 examples).
