A general catalyst system for Markovnikov-selective alkoxycarbonylation of aliphatic olefins remains unknown. In this paper, we show that a specific palladium catalyst system consisting of PdX2/N-phenylpyrrole phosphine (X, halide) catalyses the alkoxycarbonylation of various alkenes to give the branched esters in high selectivity (branched selectivity up to 91%).
