Metal acetylide elimination facilitates a novel one-pot cascade metalation and elimination/addition route to a series of unsymmetrical secondary amines from the reaction of secondary propargylamines with organometallic reagents. Spectroscopic evidence suggests a dimetalated amido intermediate rather than an allene.
