(equation presented) The C-H bond activation in homogeneous catalysis is important for carbon skeleton construction through C-C bond formation. In this report, a new direct synthesis of ketimine from aldimine bearing no coordination site is demonstrated with high catalytic efficiency. Transimination is the major role for this catalytic reaction.
