Karma karma karma chelation: Direct carbonylation of C[BOND]H bonds in arylacetamides was achieved using a bidentate-chelation system. The use of 2-pyridynylmethyl amino moiety is essential for the reaction to proceed. For achieving an efficient reaction, the presence of both ethylene (for a hydrogen acceptor) and H2O (probably for an efficient generation of catalytic active species) are required.
