A palladium-catalyzed carbonylative transformation of organic halides with formic acid as the coupling partner provides carboxylic acids in the presence of a catalytic amount of DCC as the activator. Both vinyl and aryl (pseudo)halides were conveniently transformed into the corresponding acids in good yields.
