Hybrid catalysis is a current trend in catalyst development, which integrates multiple functions of independent catalysts as a system. Hybrid catalysis promotes new reactions or known reactions with better efficiencies. Byrne and Albrecht have reported an oxidative dimerization of primary benzylamines to imines under aerobic conditions using a triazolium iodide catalyst. The authors propose that the azolinium π system polarizes molecular diiodine, which is generated through aerobic oxidation of iodide anion, and the generated activated diiodine acts as an active oxidant for conversion of amines to imines. Matsuda and co-workers have also reported reductive N–O bond cleavage of N-methoxyamides using a catalyst system consisting of i-Bu3Al and Pd(dba)2.
