The dinuclear Rh­(III) species [Cp*RhCl2]2 catalyzes the hydroamination reaction between an aromatic terminal alkyne (ArCCH) and an aniline (Ar′NH2), in the presence of a salt additive, to afford the ketimine Ar′NC­(Me)­(Ar). A reaction pathway has been proposed on the basis of experimental and computational studies.
