We have found that an iridium-dinitrogen complex bearing an anionic benzene-based PCP-type pincer ligand works as an effective catalyst for the reduction of dinitrogen into tris(trimethylsilyl)amine under ambient reaction conditions. This result demonstrates the first successful example of the iridium-catalyzed transformation of dinitrogen under ambient reaction conditions.
