Dehydrogenation chemistry with iron: The first examples of efficient iron-catalyzed dehydrocoupling/dehydrogenation of amine–boranes at ambient temperature have been reported. In the case of the primary amine–borane adduct MeNH2BH3, both the polymer and/or N-alkyl borazine can be obtained (see scheme; 1=[{CpFe(CO)2}2]).
