Heavier group 2 metals and intermolecular hydroamination: a computational and synthetic assessment.


A density functional theory assessment of the use of the group 2 elements Mg, Ca, Sr, and Ba for the intermolecular hydroamination of ethene indicated that the efficiency of the catalysis is dependent upon both the polarity and the deformability of the electron density within the metal-substituent bonds of key intermediates and transition states.
