The ability of tungsten hexafluoride to behave as a Lewis acid is well documented (1,2), and the resulting complexes are formulated from their n.m.r. spectra as molecular species (2). An adduct, WF<sub>6</sub>・3MeNH<sub>2</sub>, has been described (1), but we now show that WF<sub>6</sub> undergoes aminolysis with primary amines RNH<sub>2</sub> (R = Me, Et, Bu<sup><i>n</i></sup>, and Bu<sup><i>t</i></sup>) and with methyl(trimethylsilyl)amine to give products containing R–N–W<sup>VI</sup> groups.
