′N′ front and center: The facile construction of C[BOND]N bonds by the generation of nitrogen-centred radicals from N-fluorobenzenesulfonimide results in the aminative difuctionalization of alkenes. The first copper-catalyzed intermolecular aminocyanation of alkenes and diamination of styrenes were realized. Si–F and B–F interactions play a significant role in the reaction.
