Abstract

A new preparative method of β- and γ-alkoxy (acetoxy) ketones, which are important precursors of vinyl ketones and 1,4-diketones, respectively, is presented. With PdCl2/CuCl/O2 or PdCl2/p-benzoquinone catalyst system, internal olefins bearing allylic alkoxy or acetoxy group underwent regioselective oxidation to form the corresponding β-alkoxy or β-acetoxy ketones. Similarly, γ-acetoxy ketones were obtained from homoallyl acetates having internal olefins with high regioselectivity.
