Abstract

Pd(OAc)2 combined with PPh3 is a good catalyst for the addition reaction of CCl4 and CO to olefins in ethanol to afford ethyl 2-alkyl-4,4,4-trichlorobutanoates. The esters were obtained in satisfactory yields when the reaction was carried out at 50° in the presence of K2CO3 under CO pressure.
