In the presence of alkylsilanes, the cationic IrI complex [{Ir[bis(pyrazol-1-yl)methane](CO)2}BPh4] (1) catalyses the reduction of a range of imines, including N-alkyl and N-aryl imines, and both aldimines and ketimines. Excellent conversions directly to the product amines are achieved rapidly at room temperature in methanol solution.
