Late Transition Metal-Catalyzed Hydroamination

Part of the Topics in Organometallic Chemistry book series (TOPORGAN, volume 43)


This chapter describes late transition metal complexes-catalyzed hydroamination, the formal addition of an H–N bond across a C–C multiple bond. Late transition metal catalysis has been intensely developed in the hydroamination and additions of various kinds of amines to C–C multiple bonds have been achieved. The reaction pathways strongly depend on the choice of metal complexes, substrates, and reaction conditions. This chapter is organized primarily based on the difference in the mechanisms of hydroamination reactions, and in the scope section concise summary of the hydroamination reaction is shown.
