Role reversal: The title reaction has been developed to deliver α-amino acids under very mild reaction conditions (see scheme; dpppen=1,5-bis(diphenylphosphino)pentane). The catalysis provides a new CN bond-forming approach for the synthesis of α-amino acids by using an umpolung, electrophilic amination strategy.
