The synthesis and characterization of Fe–diphosphineborane complexes are described in the context of N_2 functionalization chemistry. Iron aminoimides can be generated at room temperature under 1 atm N_2 and are shown to react with E–H bonds from PhSiH_3 and H_2. The resulting products derive from delivery of the E fragment to Nα and the H atom to B. The flexibility and lability of the Fe–BPh interactions in these complexes engender this reactivity.
