Just the one: The combination of palladium dichloride and N,N-dimethylacetamide (DMA) constitutes a highly efficient and reusable catalytic system, which uses molecular oxygen as the sole reoxidant for liquid-phase Wacker oxidation and acetoxylation of terminal olefins to the corresponding methyl ketones and linear allylic acetates, respectively (see scheme).
