Abstract

Rhodium complexes bearing an anionic pyrrole-based PNP-type pincer ligand are synthesised and found to work as effective catalysts for the transformation of molecular dinitrogen into tris(trimethylsilyl)amine under mild reaction conditions. This is the first successful example of rhodium-catalysed dinitrogen reduction under mild reaction conditions.
