Hydrazinolysis of unactivated amide bonds is significantly accelerated by the addition of ammonium salts. The reactions proceed at 50–70 °C to give amines with broad substrate scope that outperforms existing amide bond cleavage reactions. Application to peptide and amino sugar derivatives is also demonstrated.
