The reduction of a nickel salt in the presence of bases provides active and selective nanoparticle catalysts for the racemization of both benzylic and aliphatic amines. By using ionic liquids as solvent for the nanoparticle synthesis, stable nanocube catalysts were obtained that can be used to produce enantiopure amides in a two-pot system using a biphasic racemization step.
