Abstract

From a methyl ligand, CO, and an imine a chelating amide ligand is formed by insertion of the C=N bond into the metal-acyl bond in cationic palladium(II) complexes (see reaction below). The cationic acylpalladium complexes are obtained from CO and readily accessible palladium starting materials. LL = diphosphane ligand.
