The first examples of palladium-catalyzed oxidative amination of unactivated alkyl olefins have been identified. To be successful, these reactions must be conducted under cocatalyst-free conditions that involve direct dioxygen-coupled turnover of the palladium catalyst. The oxidative amination products of norbornene and other cyclic alkenes implicate a cis-aminopalladation mechanism.
