Abstract

The catalytic pathways of the Pd(PPh3)2Cl2/SnCl2-catalysed styrene hydroalkoxycarbonylation reaction have been elucidated. Using deuterium labelling, the different reaction products were detected by mass spectral analysis and the deuterium content and its distribution determined by 1H-, 2H- and 13C-NMR methods. The great number of labelled species supports the assumption that the hydrido (Pd-H) route is the operating mechanism of this system. Alkyl-metal intermediates easily undergo β-hydride elimination. This process is reversible for both isomers even at low reaction temperature
