13C CPMAS NMR spectroscopy has been employed to characterize surface reaction pathways involving the complexes (Cp = and dehydroxylated (DA) or partially dehydroxylated (PDA) γ-alumina. A number of possible reaction modes can be ruled out, and surface-induced migratory CO insertion to yield a carbene-like acyl complex is identified as the predominant if not exclusive pathway.
