    K was wondering if this rxn would work:

    CH3NH2 + HCN -> (CH3)2N2 +H2

    Then using a Cu catalyst at a high pressure:

    (CH3)2N2 + 2H2 -> 2CH3NH2

    Overall:

    HCN + H2 -> CH3NH2

    Also, talking about the origin of life, would these materials be present in the early oceans (I'm thinking you might get enough pressure in the deep sea?).

    ups ! don't you think so that you must first balance the reaction . neither of your is balanced , that is why you got unexpected reaction (after summing up ) .. :?
