Abstract

A palladium-catalyzed oxidative reaction is reported which converts dihydropyrans to their corresponding ortholactone. The products are formed in good to excellent yields with a very high level of chemoselectivity and functional group tolerance. Mechanistic studies confirm that the reaction proceeds by a Wacker-type mechanism.
