The octahedral titanium catalyst Ti(Ph2-PNpy) 2(NEt2)2 (1) was found to be an efficient catalyst for the hydroamination of methylenecyclopropane with either aromatic or aliphatic amines. For a symmetrical methylenecyclopropane, only one product is obtained in high yield. The reaction of complex 1 with ethylamine and aniline produces the dimeric titanium complexes Ti2(Ph2PN py)2(μ-NEt)2 and Ti2(Ph 2PNpy)2(μ-NPh)2, respectively.
