The hydrogenation of imines to amines in the presence of catalytic amounts of zinc triflate has been demonstrated for the first time. In addition, an efficient procedure for the reductive hydroamination of alkynes to amines is presented using zinc triflate as a catalyst precursor. In both protocols a variety of different functional groups are tolerated, and the reactions proceed smoothly in high yields.
