Transition metal catalysis represents a relatively unexplored but potentially useful route to form bonds between main group elements. Previous work in the area of amine-borane adduct dehydrocoupling has exclusively employed late transition metal (e.g., Rh) catalysts which were found to predominantly operate via a heterogeneous mechanism. Herein, we present a new, early transition-metal-catalyzed, homogeneous system which exhibits higher activity.
