Filling out the space: The title reaction of unactivated Cmath image[BOND]H bonds using aryl amines as the nitrogen source is disclosed (see scheme; dba=dibenzylideneacetone, Tf=trifluoromethanesulfonyl). Either the C[BOND]N cross-coupling product or the C[BOND]H amination product could be accessed selectively by adjusting the steric environment of the substrate.
