Abstract

The synthesis and characterization of a series of Me2Si[(η5-C5Me4)( tBuN)]LnE(TMS)2 complexes is described for Ln = Sm, Nd, Yb, Lu; E = CH, N. As precatalysts for aminoalkene hydroamination/cyclization, they are significantly more active than the corresponding (C5Me5)2LnE(TMS)2 complexes.
