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, WF6・3MeNH2, has been described (1), but we now show that WF6 undergoes aminolysis with primary amines RNH2 (R = Me, Et, Bun, and But) and with methyl(trimethylsilyl)amine to give products containing R–N–WVI groups.
