Alkenyl Exchange of Allyl­amines via Nickel(0)-Catalyzed C–C Bond Cleavage

A functional group exchange reaction between allyl­amines and alkenes via nickel-catalyzed CC bond cleavage and formation was developed. This reaction provides a novel protocol, which does not require the use of unstable imine substrates, for the synthesis of allyl­amines, which are widely used in the production of fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and agrochemicals.
