A palladium mimic of the Curtius rearrangement and a palladium-catalyzed geminal addition of a Si-N bond occurs in the high-yielding synthesis of cyanamides from isocyanides and trimethylsilyl azide in the presence of a palladium catalyst (see scheme). A wide range of functional groups are tolerated in the reaction.
