Hydrocarboxymethylation of cis-1,4-hexadiene was studied. Palladium catalysts showed poor selectivity and catalyzed the formation of esters and five-membered cyclic ketones. Di-1. of a small amount of hydrogen did not affect the rate of reaction. The double bonds of I and II remained unchanged during carbonylation.
