In the presence of carboxylic acid anions, the normally difficult carbonylation of (π-allyl)palladium complexes can be achieved quantitatively at low pressure and temperature, thereby providing a new low-pressure route to β,γ-unsaturated esters from olefins. A (π-allyl)carbalkoxypalladimu complex is proposed to be a key intermediate in this reaction.
