Catalytic activity of rare-earth metal complexes for dehydrocoupling of Me2NH·BH3 is deeply ligand- and metal ion-dependent, and 1-methyl boratabenzene yttrium alkyl shows very high activity for the reaction (TOF > 1000 h–1). The transformation of Me2NH·BH3 into [Me2N–BH2]2 proceeds through an intermediate Me2NH–BH2–NMe2–BH3.
