An efficient ligand-free protocol for the amincocarbonylation of aryl iodides with aromatic and aliphatic amines afforded the desired amides in excellent yields using a low loading of palladium(II) acetate as catalyst in water under mild operating conditions. The system tolerated a wide variety of hindered and functionalized substrates.
