Abstract: Carbonylative transformations of alkyl bromides have been explored less than those of aryl halides, in part because of the high barrier to activation of aryl bromides. Additionally, alkyl-metal reagents formed in situ can tend to undergo β-hydride elimination. Here we describe a copper/iron co-catalyzed alkoxycarbonylation of unactivated alkyl bromides. In the presence of catalytic quantities of iron and copper catalysts, primary, secondary, and tertiary alkyl bromides are carbonylatively transformed into the corresponding aliphatic esters in good yields. A potential reaction mechanism is proposed based on control experiments.
