A palladium catalyzed carbonylation of aryl iodides using near stoichiometric amounts of carbon monoxide enables the synthesis of monoprotected 1,3-ketoaldehydes. Besides representing platforms for a variety of heterocyclic structures, these motives serve as viable precursors for the highly relevant aryl methyl ketones.
