6-(1-Iodovinyl)-1,4-dioxaspiro[4.5]decane, an iodoalkene obtained from 2-acetylcyclohexanone via ethylene ketal formation, hydrazone formation and iodination, was aminocarbonylated in the presence of a palladium-phosphine precatalyst. Systematic investigations revealed that 2-(1,4-dioxaspiro[4.5]decan-6-yl)acrylamides can be obtained in high yields via palladium-catalysed aminocarbonylation. The influence of the amine nucleophiles and of the reaction conditions on the isolated yields was investigated. Graphical abstract: (Chemical Equation Presented).
