Hi organic chemists,
This is supposed to be a named reaction,
I have an alkene that reacts with HN3/acid to give me an enamine.
In actual fact, I have two cyclohexane fused together with a double bond in between, going to form an enamine.
I have tried to work out the mechanism, but it'd be nice if i can find out the specific name of this reaction. Thanks.

I think it's a slight variation of the Schmidt Reaction, with the enamine being the more stable tautomer of the product instead of the imine. The mechanism can be found here:
