In a simple, Mo-mediated carbamoylation reaction of aryl halides, the incorporation of carbon monoxide is so efficient that it requires only a slight excess amount of carbon monoxide in the form of its molybdenum complex, Mo(CO)6. The reaction is applicable for the synthesis of a wide variety of not only secondary and tertiary amides but also primary amides by using aqueous ammonia.
