Iridium complexes supported by the PNP amidophosphine scaffold (PNP = [N(2-PiPr2-4-Me-C6H3)2]−) perform the selective double C−H activation of methyl amines to produce iridium(III) dihydrido aminocarbenes. The reactivity of these complexes is presented and contrasted with that observed for the previously reported iridium(I) alkoxycarbenes.
