The calcium-catalyzed intramolecular hydroamination of alkenes and alkynes is reported. The β-diketiminato complex [{HC(C(Me)2N-2,6-iPr2C6H3)2}-Ca{N(SiMe3)2}(THF)] affects catalytic cyclization of a range of aminoalkenes and aminoalkynes with activities that are broadly commensurate to those of established rare earth catalysts.
