The 7-coordinate complex [Fe(qpy)(MeCN)2](ClO4)2 (1, qpy = 2,2':6',2″:6″,2''':6''',2''''-quinquepyridine) is a highly active nonheme iron catalyst for intra- and intermolecular amination of C(sp(3))-H bonds. This complex effectively catalyzes the amination of limiting amounts of not only benzylic and allylic C(sp(3))-H bonds of hydrocarbons but also the C… CONTINUE READING
