Tantalizingly simple: The common organometallic starting material TaMe3Cl2 can be used for the catalytic C[BOND]H functionalization reaction, hydroaminoalkylation. The substrate scope for this readily accessed compound includes unactivated terminal and internal alkenes, styrene derivatives, and both alkylaryl- and dialkyl secondary amines (see scheme).
