Abstract

We report magnesium-catalyzed cross-dehydrocoupling of Si–H and N–H bonds to give Si–N bonds and H2. A number of silazanes are accessible using this method, as well as silylamines from NH3 and silylhydrazines from N2H4. Kinetic studies of the overall catalytic cycle and a stoichiometric Si–N bond-forming reaction suggest nucleophilic attack by a magnesium amide as the turnover-limiting step.
