Diamination of alkenes made easy! The simple combination of the hypervalent iodine reagents PhI(OAc)2 or PhI(OAc)NTs2 with HNTs2 generates an unprecedentedly robust tool for the rapid and productive diamination of alkenes. Reactions include (clockwise from top right) styrenes, terminal alkenes, functionalized and conjugated alkenes, as well as internal alkenes.
