Methyl prolinate and benzyl prolinate were used as secondary amine nucleophiles in palladium catalysed aminocarbonylation of iodo-aromatics and iodo-alkenes. A mixture of 2-oxo-carboxamide and carboxamide type derivatives or pure carboxamides can be obtained by using iodo-benzene or iodo-alkenes as substrates, respectively. The aminocarbonylation of iodo-alkenes in [bmim][PF6] ionic liquid was also carried out.
