(matrix presented) HI cleanly reduced chlorovinamidinium salts to the vinamidinium salt in essentially quantitative assay yield and 55-85% isolated yield following recrystallization. The reaction proceeds via protonation of the β-carbon atom of the vinamidinium and dechlorination via the formation of I-CI.
