A mild platinum-catalysed method for the formation of free amidines from the reaction of amines and trichloroacetonitrile in nonpolar solvents has been developed. This protocol provides access to novel amidines that in some cases (4b-d) cannot be synthesised via the direct reaction of amines and halogenated nitriles.
